View upstream into Waialae Stream, one of the drainages that originates in the Na'pali-Kona Forest Preserve and flows into the Waimea River. Heavy vegetation in the canyon bottom (bottom-center of photo) is the site for Poachers Camp. The nearly-flat topography of the skyline marks the paleosurface (current altitude more than 4,000 feet) that predates the down-cutting of the Waimea River and its tributaries. View of Waimea Canyon from an overlook on Highway 550, west Kaua'i.
