Even though it rained most of the day, we headed to Waimea to see the canyon. They call it the Grand Canyon of the Pacific and as much as I love the Grand Canyon - and I'm a super huge fan of him, I really am - the Waimea Canyon blew my mind! All the reds of the rocks, the greens of the plants and those gigantic waterfalls - I'll show you later - I hardly could handle the view! And doesn't the mist make you feel like you're in a mystic place?!
The Waimea Canyon is about 16km / 10 miles long and 900m / 3000ft deep. The river you look at in these pictures is the Waimea River. It's one of the longest river (19km / 12 miles)in the Hawaiian Islands.
