Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
Some weeks you’re feeling motivated and productive, and other weeks, well, it just isn’t happening. If this week is feeling more like the latter for you, take a minute to enjoy these ten beautiful photographs from Hawaii. What better place to dream about escaping to than this island paradise?
From the well known tourist destinations, to the hidden locations that you can only learn about from locals, Hawaii doesn’t have a single beach that isn’t picturesque.
Some people don’t realize that towering cliffs are often found just beyond that patch of sandy beach.
You can count on plenty of vibrant green vegetation wherever you look. A perfect example? The Kalalau Valley on Kauai.
Anytime you can watch the sun sink into the ocean, it’s bound to make for an awesome photo opportunity.
People travel from all across the world to come surf on these legendary waves.
For example, here’s Wailua Falls in Kauai. Imagine being the person to first stumble upon this massive waterfall out in the wilderness.
Go ahead and take a couple of minutes to imagine yourself in this hammock on the beach. Brilliant blue water, warm golden sun, and a cool ocean breeze, all beneath the palm trees.
Sometimes they erupt, and photographers capture amazing photos like this. (While they rest of us ooo and ahh from a safe distance.)
Whether it’s kayaking near lava flows, learning to surf, or doing some serious hiking, you won’t be bored for a second.
Hike up to Koko Crater in Hawaii Kai to see this breathtaking vista with your own eyes.
