Scenic Views in Hawaii
Good Day and Happy Tuesday!!
What a gross day it is - raining and gray. According to the weather report, the entire week is supposed to be wet and icky.
Sometimes it's not such a bad thing to have a little rain - it can be quite peaceful just listening to the sound of the raindrops outside.

This fifteen-mile stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest shore of Kauai literally means "the Cliffs."
The best ways to experience Na Pali's myriad of natural wonders is by sailing, hiking and rafting as most of the coast is inaccessible due to its sheer cliffs that drop straight down, thousands of feet into the ocean.
Known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” for panoramic views.
Home to the state capital, Honolulu and Waikiki, the iconic beach.
Nuuanu Pali Lookout has panoramic views of the Koolau Mountains and the Windward Coast of Oahu.
According to gohawaii.com, "Named “Pali” meaning ‘cliff’ in Hawaiian, the Pali Lookout is the site of the Battle of Nuuanu, where in 1795 King Kamehameha I won the struggle that finally united Oahu under his rule. This fierce battle claimed hundreds of soldiers’ lives, many of which were forced off of the Pali’s sheer cliffs.
