|The Waimea Canyon
Waimea Canyon is referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Waimea in Hawaiian means "red water." The river water is a bit reddish, which is caused by the runoff of the iron-rich soil. The canyon was so serene standing on the lookout. It demanded peace, eventhough there were several people. Everyone was hushed silent... taking it all in.
