Hanalei Bay on a cloudy evening

Hanalei Bay on a cloudy evening

We’ve just come back from Hawai‘i, the newest state in the Union (Hawaii joined the US in 1959). We stayed on Kaua‘i, the oldest island in the volcanic archipelago, and supposedly the most lush. We intend to visit other Hawaiian islands to confirm that for ourselves.

Our hotel was on the north side of the island, very close to the famously beautiful Na Pali coast. Na Pali’s steeply valleyed coastline is thought to have been formed by its enormous rainfall of 460” per year. (And that would explain why the land is so luxuriantly verdant.)
