"Or the Man in Repose"

What sort of attraction could possibly have earned a name like Sleeping Giant? A mountain that looks like one, of course. This Kauai landmark can be viewed from the eastern shore of the island. It can also be a day's hike, for anyone with an inclination to see the view from its summit. As with many natural wonders on the Hawaiian Islands, there is a legend to go along with the name of this mountain: a giant named Puni was resting, but somebody decided that they wanted to wake him up. They threw rocks that were intended to rouse Puni from his nap, but instead, lodged in his mouth and suffocated him. Now Puni will sleep forever in his spot by the Wailua River.
