Waimea Canyon (Waimea, HI)

I know I was bowled over when I first laid eyes on Waimea Canyon more years ago than I care to count. I was no less impressed when I saw it again yesterday. Nicknamed Grand Canyon of the Pacific for obvious reasons, it is a testament to the power of water erosion and faulting. The view above is from the Lookout in Waimea Canyon State Park. Waipo’o Falls can be seen at the extreme left.
