Kauai is the island where they filmed Jurassic Park, because it is sooo green and lush. They say it is always raining on some part of the island, and we got a small dose of it (not too much though!) when we went ziplining through the trees and over the ravines. It was a ton of fun!! At the highest we were 200 feet above ground.
Afterwards, we rented mopeds and once we negotiated our way out of busy traffic, rolled through some great, open countryside and down to some falls with a swimming hole.
