雨后见彩虹 A rainbow that's worth the rainfall

威美亚峡谷上空的彩虹,夏威夷

威美亚峡谷被誉为“太平洋大峡谷”,是风景如画的怀波奥瀑布所在地。瀑布和峡谷河流的源头来自地球上降雨量最多的地方之一怀厄莱阿莱峰。大约400万年前,考艾岛火山坍塌了一部分,形成了一个洼地,随着威美亚流的不断侵蚀,洼地逐渐变成了如今的威美亚峡谷。考艾岛地形多变,风景各不相同,如果你想探寻考艾岛的多样性,可以离开海滩,沿着蜿蜒的550高速公路进入山区,在到达怀波奥瀑布观景台之前,你会在沿途收获海岸和峡谷的壮丽景色。

Waimea Canyon and Waipo'o Falls, Kauai, Hawaii

Waimea Canyon, sometimes referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, is home to the picturesque Waipo'o Falls. The water that flows through the falls and canyon descends from Mount Wai'ale'ale, one of the rainiest places on Earth. Around 4 million years ago, a portion of the volcanic Kaua'i collapsed, creating a depression that the Waimea River has further eroded into today's canyon. If you want to see the true variety of Kauai, leave the beach behind and take winding State Route 550 into the mountains. Along the way you will see stunning views of the shore and the canyon before arriving at the lookout for Waipo'o Falls.
