Kauai is an island in the Central Pacific, part of the Hawaiian archipelago. It's nicknamed "the Garden Isle" thanks to the tropical rainforest covering much of its surface. The dramatic cliffs and pinnacles of its Na Pali Coast have served as a backdrop for major Hollywood films, while 10-mile-long Waimea Canyon and the Nounou Trails traversing the Sleeping Giant mountain ridge are hiking destinations. This gorgeous, highly detailed satellite image is the perfect way to admire the island from space. The satellite imagery has been "enhanced" using elevation data to create a "3D" effect, giving the image more depth. While naturally colorful, this Landsat 7 satellite image has also been slightly color enhanced to bring out it's underlying rich and vibrant tones.
