Encountered mixed weather on our drive up the canyon, but that led to some amazing light for photos. The highlight was a rainbow forming just below us, next to a baby goat on cliff. Truly remarkable to be looking down on such a beautiful sight.

This activity can take an entire day if you want it to - you drive up the canyon road, stopping at any of the dozens of lookout points you want to along the way.
The very last lookout (which is less frequented, the 2nd to last lookout has the biggest parking lot) has a much better view. There are also picnic table areas along the road, so you can pack a lunch and stop somewhere and eat it during the day. Many of these picnic areas also have bathrooms.

Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Definitely worth a visit. As you drive up you feel as though you are lifted to another place. The temperature drops and the fauna changes drastically. Suddenly you can smell eucalyptus and gaze upon an incredible formation caused by the island's last volcanic eruption. There are two different ways to get there, take Hwy 50 up and 51 down. Another great way to explore is with Outfitters Kauai downhill bike tour.

**MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I'VE SEEN BESIDES 6 PACK ABS**
This place ROCKS (pun intended).
It is indeed the "GRAND CANYON OF THE PACIFIC".
Not as big or historic as its Arizona counterpart, you won't encounter anything like this geological wonderment in Hawaii.
14 MILES long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,600 fee deep.
A DEFINITE MUST-DO ON KAUAI.
The main road, Waimea Canyon Drive, leads you to a lower lookout point and the main Waimea Canyon Overlook, offering CRAY-CRAY views.
The road continues into the mountains and ends at Kokee State Park.
Being adventurous, we hiked on one of the off trails and was rewarded with a fantastic view.
