The first is the Wailua River.

The second one is on the north shore of Kauai. Not sure, but probably a valley in back of Haena. Here's another photo I found of the same peak:

The third one is a canyon in the interior of Kauai. I suspect it is east of Waimea canyon, because I found the same background here (the third one on the Jack Harter Helicopter tour):

The fourth one, like the second, is from Rachel Olsen Photography, here:

and is of a beach along the Na Pali coast.

The last is of Wailua Falls.

Just got back from Kauai, and the last one, which is (as previously identified) Wailua Falls. Here is a pic I took.

The second one looks like it could be a view from Hanalei Valley

The third one is visible from one of the lookouts at Weimea canyon, I have a picture of it that I took, but it's on my home computer.

From that photo, Wailua Falls are almost identical to Wainuenue (Rainbow) falls in Hilo. Same split falls, about the same size and shape. Kinda interesting that the oldest of the island chain would have such similar topography to the newest of the island chain.

I think a geologist would tell you that the similarities in rivers are more due to the shape of the islands than to the ages or the heights of their mountains.

Kauai and Hawaii have their peaks near the center of the island, while Oahu has essentially two ridges, each running almost the north-south length of the island. Most of the rain on Oahu falls within five miles of the windward coast, so there are no long rivers. Even though the highest peak on Kauai is only about a mile high and the highest on Hawaii is over two, the similarity of rivers is probably due to the rain that falls near the center of the island and has so far to travel over land to return to the sea.

Hi,
I am living on Oahu's North Shore and have been here for almost two years. I am retired. I would like to move to Kauai or so I think. I hear it is more rural, has more aloha and it is smaller so I am closer to drive to any of the beaches. I hear it is more beautiful there on the North Shore and I love this North Shore but it is very touristy and roads are now being built most likely for The Mormons and the tourist which is fine I suppose but it is ruining the coast line and that is the price that is being paid. I'd like to move to Kauai because it is not likely to have much development going on there and as I said, I have heard it is more beautiful than here. The woods I live in here on the shore are perfectly rural and filled with ocean surf busting and chickens cackling and bird coo. I am a photographer and writer so I don't need a lot to do other than that, just the environment for it. Any feedback will be welcomed. Mahalo, Turnsit

The north shore on Kauai is fantastic. You need to schedule a trip and stay for at least a month. Then you will know if Kauai's north shore is what you want. I have lived in both places and can't say either was better then the other. Each one has it's own thing and individual in it's own right. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Here is a link to a page on my website that has links to lots and lots of things to see and do on the North Shore of Kauai. If you spend some time wandering through all the links, you will get a pretty good flavor of the area. There are some videos.
