Here are a few photos of this trip on one of the greenest islands on the planet where a lot of Hollywood movies have been shot like Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark to name a few.
Several photos were made while hiking the Awa'awapuhi Trail in Koke'e State Park.
It is 3.1 miles one way downhill (6.2 miles roundtrip), starting at 4,120 feet of altitude and reaching 2,500 feet at the lookout that dominates the Awa'awapuhi and the Nu'alolo valleys.
The vivid redish cliff that dominates the ocean is were a scene from the movie Six Days, Seven Nights was shot, when Harrison Ford loses it as he and Anne Heche reach the cliff thinking they were on a different island.
Overcast sky that day
It cleared up for a few seconds, just enough time to snap the photo

Kauai is a paradise for bird lovers
Whatch out for the sheer force of the air flow pushed down by the rotor

A bit too small for my point and shoot camera
a good spot to snorkle with sea turtles
