The Traveler - Aloha from Kaua'i

Hi friends! Chantal here, Pigment's photog. A week ago I got to take a little "R&R" on the beautiful island of Kaua'i. It's an incredibly beautiful and lush island, as most would think of Hawaii. But this island is a little different. It isn't an island topped with fancy resorts and glamorous shopping. Rather, it has a more small town feel. There are more fresh fruit stands than coffee shops. Wild chickens and roosters roam freely amongst the tourists (there are no pigeons or sea gulls..at least that I saw). Wide green pastures with grazing goats and horses. Little kitties hang out at the beach with the locals, and the Napali Coast's majestic stature lures you in and transports you into an entirely different world. Sigh... I'd like to be there right now as I type this.

Hanakapiai Falls, Kauai

We trudged through the a rugged coast on the Kalalau trail, through Hanakapi'ai Valley on an unmaintained trail which lead us to this stunning waterfall. Totally strenuous. Totally worth it!
