Today we drove north from Lihue to explore some on the north side of the island. We had hoped to go snorkeling but the ocean was far too rough for it to be enjoyable, so we settled on an effort to reach Makapili Rock and nearby Crater Hill. Afterwards we visited a few touristy waterfalls and then a repeat to Sleeping Giant, giving Iris a chance to visit this popular Kauai summit.
After returning to the jeep, we paid a visit to Wailua Falls, one of the larger falls on the island easily reached by vehicle. It's terribly crowded with tourists with limited parking. Tom used the jeep to advantage, parking in a spot no one else dared to. Score one or the jeep.
