Kauai, Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Park

Kauai, January 2015

Everyone calls this the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.  Yup, that sounds right!
It's a popular spot

so there is always someone willing to take your photo

but maybe you brought your selfie-stick :)

It is not the easiest environment to live in.  We did spot some goats that were in the valley.

Once you have seen the canyon from the main lookout, keep going so you can see more canyon

and a waterfall

It is important to note the red dirt.

Keep going up the road through Koke'e State Park.  There are a bunch of great look outs

Best view of Nihau

A bunch of great hikes are available

We didn't do a whole trail, but even just a half mile here and there was lovely.

If you don't want to hike the whole 22 miles of the Na Pali coast you can still see Kalalau Valley from the lookout.

Be sure and stop at the Kokee Natural History Museum-great exhibits like Queen Emma going out to Alaka'i Swamp and mysterious objects like the squid lure sinker.
