Kalalea, Kauai


Kalalea is a distinctive looking mountain on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, the westernmost and fourth-largest of the Hawaiian islands.  It's situated in the southeastern part of the island, near the town of Lihue. Famously, the mountain can be seen in the opening of the 1981 blockbuster movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, the first of the Indiana Jones series.  In the opening scene, the image of fictional "Paramount Mountain" fades to a shot of the very real Kalalea, whose profile is oddly similar.
