Kauai: Waimea canyon

Waimea canyon

Big hole in the ground

One of the "must-see" sights on Kauai is Waimea Canyon, dubbed the "Grand Canyon of Hawaii" by Mark Twain (or so the story goes). It is truly an awesome sight. Alas, it is difficult to get good pictures that do justice to the grandeur without special — read "expensive" — equipment. That said, I did come away with some respectable snaps for the slideshow (sidebar).
