When you think of Hawaii, you usually think of beautiful, prestine beaches, not mountains. But the island of Kauai offers both in a magnificient way.
There are two ways to see the Waimea Canyon, either to see it by air in a helicopter ride (thats another article!) or by car. There are two different main roads (highways) to get to the top of the canyon. Both roads will meet near the top of the canyon and both are steep incline and windy roads, so going up hill or downhill through these roads you need to have a reliable breaking system in your car and drive according to the posted speed limit. You also need to make sure that you have enough gas to drive up and down of the canyon because there is not a lot of establishments available on your way up or on top.
