Looking Through Waimea Canyon

Before we went to Kauai, my friend and co-worker Lori said she went to see the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific", which is Waimea Canyon, but all she saw were clouds.  Well, we had a similar experience.  We drove the road that sort of skirts Waimea Canyon from where it ends on the coast to where the canyon begins near the middle of the island in the higher elevations.  When we got to the top all we saw were clouds as well.  However, a few stops on the way up were pretty clear and we were able to see some pretty spectacular views.  This is one of those views.  It was pretty hazy, but it turned out nice nevertheless.  This shot is from one along route 550 on the way up.  It's a funny shot because if you look at the horizon, it seems kind of crooked towards the middle-right because that's where the mountains slope down towards the coast.  However, when you look at the clouds, you can see the it's really quite level.  Just one of those optical illusions, I guess.
