The Seven Wonders of the World sounded so magical and elusive to me as a child. Seeing those wonders in person seemed like a million miles and a million years away, but not impossible. It was a dream to aspire to. Back then, the Seven Wonders refered to the ancient world. Today, we have all kinds of Seven Wonders lists to include architecture, underwater phenomena, and even a New7 list that includes the internet. And all the lists are correct. Earth has some amazing features that are awe-inspiring.
I’ve seen the Taj Mahal, looked out from the former World Trade Center Towers and visited the Grand Canyon, among other exciting opportunities. As Spring evolves with all its natural wonder and we prepare for a funeral in our family, I am reminded of the Wonders of Hawai’i. There are far more than Seven wonders among the inhabited – interestingly enough – seven islands (6 are accessible to tourists). To not put Hawai’i on your must visit travel list is to miss some of nature’s most wonderful accomplishments.
Just a few examples are Maui’s Haleakala – the crater, the waterfalls tumbling down the sides of the mountain, and the forest surrounding it, Kauai’s entire landscape, including NaPali, Waimea Canyon, Hanalei (especially as seen from the resorts of Princeville), the Menehune Fish Ponds and on and on…Hawaii’s (The Big Island) active volcanoes, Akaka Falls State Park, Waimea coastline (not to be confused with the Kauai canyon) or O’ahu’s Diamond Head from a sunset cruise and the North Shore. Then, there are the smaller islands of Lanai, featuring the Garden of the Gods (Keahiakawelo) or Molokai, sheltered by 32 miles of fringed reef on the southern shore. Not to mention the unforgettable experience of viewing the whales in season, the spinner dolphins in motion or the turtles nesting on shore.
