I'm posting this minutes after experiencing a dramatic sunrise from the Waimea Canyon Lookout. I pulled my friends out of bed in the middle of the night and we drove to the lookout for sunrise.
There are many spectacular places in Hawaii where you can enjoy sunrise and this is one of them.
I have been pleasantly surprised to be the only people up here for a peaceful, spiritual sunrise experience this morning.
If you visit Kauai I highly suggest making this trek and watching the colors of the canyon come alive with the sun. The reds, greens, and blues are dramatically awaken with the morning blasts of sun rays.
I know many suggest this place, but I wanted to encourage travelers to grab the sunrise experience if possible.
Bring a sweater or jacket to stay warm. Bring coffee or hit chocolate. Then, relax and let the magic unfold visually. Your other senses, especially sound, will be enhanced as well.
Kauai is a travelers dream.
Just had to share in hopes that others consider this breathtaking way to start the morning.
