Waimea Canyon

Waimea Canyon is also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. It starts on the south of Kauai and runs for 16 kilometers inland. It is up to 900 meters (3000 feet) deep. My wife and I visited the canyon by driving up the canyon road where there are many places where you can pull off and park to take photographs. If you look closely at the photo on the bottom right you can see a helicopter flying through the canyon. It gives you a sense of just how big the canyon is. Helicopter tours of the canyon are very popular and we saw at least half a dozen helicopters while we visited the canyon.
