Do you know that Kaua'i has the largest canyon in the Pacific?

Waimea (meaning "reddish water" in Hawaiian) Canyon, or the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, is 16 kilometres long and 900 metres deep. A number of geological events have chiseled it over a period of 5 million years. One of them is erosion with the Waimea River and extreme rainfall on Mount Waiʻaleʻale, one of the wettest places on earth.

The peak receives an average of 11,500 mm of water every year!
