The other week JJ surprised me with an island hopping adventure to Kauai. This island is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands. Here are a few picture from our trip.


Waimea Canyon : "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific"
After driving on a curvy mountain road for about an hour you arrive at the top of a peak with a look out platform. I thought the view was spectacular. You can see how the river has carved through the volcanic rock and the layers of earth that has created the island.JJ on the other hand was not quiet as impressed comparing it to the real Grand Canyon! Maybe one day I'll have him take me there. 

Off in the distance you can see the really beaches and hills of Ni'ihau, the Forbidden island. 

The Hawaii Islands has a plethora of waterfalls and while we were there we saw two. 
Wailua Falls.

At one time it was a test of manliness to jump off the cliff into the pool 80 feet below.

The look out for this gorgeous waterfall also over looks the Wailua river. The river has been in several movies including Indian Jones. Remember the scene where Indie is running from the natives and jumps on a water plane. This is the river bank that he spirits across.
