Sunset over Kalalau Valley

Sunset over Kalalau Valley

Sunset over Kalalau Valley.

Its difficult to capture the grandness and the beauty of this place. One has to be there in person to appreciate this view. My photo doesn’t do this place justice. Just before sunset, the light fills the green valley with golden color.

I’ve seen many dull photos of this valley taken during the day. IMHO, it would be a waste of time to come up here in the middle of the day. A sunset evening up here is unforgettable. Imagine sitting on the grass up there with a picnic basket for a couple of hours and just get lost in the view …

To see this view, drive up the Waimea Canyon Drive until the end of the road (18 miles). There are a few lookout points along the road, but none better than the last.
