Kauai: Glass Beach

In the industrial town of Hanapepe on the southern part of Kaua'i, this piece of the shore is called Glass Beach for the simple reason the sand is mixed with tiny bits of glass from discarded bottles.

Kauai: Stream near Waimea Canyon

On Kaua'i, by the side of the road leading up to Waimea Canyon, a stream cascades down this area of red dirt. We pulled over and ambled around to get some shots.

(That's me up there.)

Kauai: Waimea Canyon

The so-called "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," Waimea Canyon cuts along the western portion of Kaua'i. Being the wettest spot on earth, it also gets a lot of clouds.

Winding road leading up the mountain.

Starting at the top, this is the Kalalau Valley from Pu'u o Kila lookout.

Minutes later, the clouds roll in.

Turning around, here's the canyon. (Really, it's behind those clouds.)

Down to the Pu'u Himahina lookout, it's a little better.

Farther down, Waimea Canyon lookout is clear.

One of the ubiquitous Kaua'i chickens wanders by the parking lot.
