More Colors of Kauai

View of the mountains from the Princeville golf course, actually taken yesterday, January 16th.  Today, we were awoken by a huge clap of thunder, and a poof as the power went out, just before the skies lit with lightning.

Fifteen inches of rain on Mt. Wai'ale'ale, the wettest spot on earth, brought back the waterfalls which we had not seen yet on this trip.  As the falls came rushing down, the red-muddied waters flooded the Hanalei River and forced the closing of the one-lane bridge into Hanalei.

It all turned out OK, with the heavy rain breaking at mid-day, the river receding by late afternoon, the bridge finally opening in the early evening.  All in all, the stuff of memories!
