Waimea Canyon Lookout

After off-roading, we had some time to spare before heading back to our condo an hour and fourty minutes away to Princeville so we thought why check it out + take atvantage of their bathrooms! There are not many to come by.img

They were selling all sorts of unique in-season local fruits. We got some local star fruit for a snack.img

I love landscapes that drop your stomach and make you realize how tiny we really are.

We only went to the lookout point. I HIGHLY reccomend taking a couple extra hours to drive the whole way up to Kalalau lookout and explore all the stops. The drive is awesome and the views are my favorite in all of Kauai!
