Stop 5: Kalalau Lookout
As the sign says, Mt. Waialeale is just to our east here, and this is the wettest spot on Earth.
Walk just a few meters away from the Mt. Waialeale Overlook and you are looking over the Pali Cliffs towards the north shore of Kauai. In this view, the clouds rolling in made this site a photographer's dream, with ever changing cloud patterns and lighting conditions that went from bright sunshine to walking in clouds in a matter of seconds. What fun!
From here you can continue on to Stop 6 on the ground, or you can pick another point from the Kauai Virtual Field Trip page.
