Nounou Mountain

a.k.a. 'Sleeping Giant'

The Nounou Mountain ridge between Wailua and Kapa'a has a unique feature - it looks just like a slumbering giant. Legends and tall tales abound about this strange rock formation. Most of them dealing with a giant drinking and eating in vast quantities and then laying down for a nap. He hasn't awoken since!
