Waimea Canyon, Kauai

The Waimea Canyon, the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" has been thrilling visitors for years, because of the colors which seem to change throughout the day. As the sun's angle changes, the beautiful rust color caused by the iron in the volcanic basaltic rock, and the contrasting colors of the vegetation will offer views such as this. The Waimea River flows at the bottom of this 3000 foot deep gorge. The river acts as an erosional force, downcutting deeper into the ancient lava flows with the passage of time. With the help of chemical weathering processes, deep canyons and gullies have been carved into the mountains to create the magnificent sculptured landscapes of Kauai.
