A picture is worth 1000 words, a video is worth 10,000. Helicopter trip to Waimea Canyon, where we drove on Thursday. From the ground you simply have no conception of the incredible size of these canyons. Our pilot would fly into a canyon and just keep going. You would swear you could reach out and touch the trees, then she just kept flying deeper into the canyon. Absolutely breathtaking. I was surprised the images are so sharp. The helicopter was pretty bumpy during the small squalls we hit.
We are thinking driving up to Princeville on the north side of the island tomorrow.
I was trying to put Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, but a) I was afraid of copyright Issues and b) I couldn;t find a copy to download.
I decided to buy a ukulele, learn to play it and dub my own version… eventually.
