For me, paradise is warm weather, waterfalls, magenta sunsets and crystal blue water. The island of Kauai has all of these things and more. The lush vegetation that encompasses every inch of the island is truly amazing. Giant canopy trees tower into the sky while bright pink flowers lay below. A rusty red earth offers the perfect compliment to the emerald mountains where waterfalls cascade into pools of fresh water. There is nothing like the picturesque beauty of Kauai. Here are my favorite pictures from my vacation.
