We drove down the east coast to the southern part of the island and went into Weimea Canyon State Park. It rained off and on most of the day so some of the overlooks weren't too clear. Even through the clouds we could see the brilliant layers of color in the canyon. It has been called "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific" and is one of the most visited spots on the island by tourists.

The drive to the canyon was very scenic. We passed through several coastal towns and a coffee plantation.
