Waipo’o Falls / Canyon, Hawaii

KAUAI, HAWAII …  Waipoo Falls (or Waipo’o Falls) is one of a handful of waterfalls within the Waimea Canyon, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. I believe the waterfall drops over a height of 800ft in a pair of two visible tiers fed by the Koke’e Stream.  Waimea Canyon, is a mile wide, over 10 miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep. The Canyon was formed not only by the steady process of erosion, but also by volcanic lava flows. Over time, the exposed has weathered from its original black to bright red.
