A Foray into Waimea Canyon
Our first visitor came to Kaua'i on a medical conference. We visited Laura's family when Emily and I were in Minnesota last August. Her husband, Dave, was my youth pastor growing up in Wilmington, DE. Laura and I took the dogs for an epic exploration of Waimea Canyon - check it out!

Evans, Central Kauai is suppose to be the "Wettest" place on thePlanet?

yes, on daily average it is the wettest place on earth, with over 450 inches a year (well over an inch every day!) and a record of 683 inches in 1982. Even so, the "wettest place on earth" sometimes goes to a small place in India called Cherrapunji that averages over 460 inches per year. However they get 90 percent of their rain during the rainy season and sometimes have periods of drought. Converseley, Mount Wai'ale'ale ("place of many waters") is enveloped in cloud and rain about 300 days a year. Hence the ever-present waterfalls on Kaua'i!
