It’s been almost 5 years since we last visited the island of Kauai, so I thought I’d share some photos of that trip.
Waimea Canyon is called the ‘Grand Canyon’ of the Pacific. Here the views of the rugged mountains and deep canyon are absolutely breathtaking as they taper off to sea. I took this photo from a look-out point along the road.
Kilauea Lighthouse is a great tourist spot and was instrumental in helping to navigate ships heading to/from the Orient in the early 1900’s. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1976 and has been a tourist attraction ever since. In 2010, the Kilauea Lighthouse won a spot in a multi-million dollar contest to restore historic landmarks.
And lastly, Lumahai Beach is another one of Kauai’s gorgeous beaches.
