Urban legend holds that Mark Twain dubbed Waimea Canyon as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” upon first catching sight of her deep, colorful gorges. Whether or not the legend is true isn’t what’s important, because regardless of whether Twain uttered the comparison or not, Waimea Canyon legitimately lives up to its now-famous moniker.

The largest canyon in the entire Pacific, Waimea Canyon is 14 miles long, one mile wide, and plunges over 3,600 vertical feet to the rugged valley floor beneath it.
