Wettest Place on Earth

The mountainous region on the island of Kauai, in Hawaii, receives 460 inches of rain in an average year. In Kauai, the wettest place on earth, it sometimes rains 350days out of the year!

Though Kauai has the highest average rainfall, other places on earth have received more than 460 inches of rain in a year.

Can you see all the waterfalls?

Elaine and I traveled by kayak down the Wailua River and hiked about a mile to see the "Secret Waterfall".

Not really a secret anymore!
