Kauai Adventure - Part 2

In this post, we visit the west side of Kauai where visitors can view the Waimea Canyon, often referred to as 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific".  After traveling on a narrow, windy road, we stopped at a viewpoint and gazed out on this spectacular piece of scenery.  It is considered a geological wonder in Hawaii, being 14 miles wide and more than 3600 feet deep.  Waimea is Hawaiian for reddish water because of the canyon's red volcanic soil.  I took many photos of this  colorful and awesome canyon but could only choose a few to show you, again due to limited space. I was impressed at the diversity of the island from beaches and palm trees to craggy mountain terrain.

Continuing north beyond Waimea Canyon, is another sight beautiful to behold.  From the Kalalua Lookout, you are treated to a vision of sea, sky, clouds and cliffs.  It appeared as if the clouds were dancing on the ocean waters, since the deep blue that you see in the photo is not the sky but the actual sea.  The horizontal line distinguished between the clouds is the separation between water and sky.

It was breath-taking to say the least.  I can only lift my eyes beyond the horizon and appreciate the God who is All and in all in His beauty of color, form and living nature.  Romans 1:20 says it quite well...."For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so they are without excuse."

Come!  I invite you to visit me again at The Turn-Up Patch in another two weeks, on Monday, April 10th....
