Before arriving in Hawaii I would have never guessed it to be the wettest place on Earth. Logan telling me so and reading the sign at the lookout was just not enough clarification. Much to my dismay we got caught in daily downpours on what would start as beautiful sunny days on Kauai. The […]Read more "The Wettest Place on Earth"
