Driving up the access road, we passed this red dirt waterfall.
We reached 3400 feet elevation ....
... and rewarded with a breathtaking view!
Pu'u is hill. Hinahina is the silversword - a rare plant that grows in high elevations. Yet we did not spot any hinahina ...
Climbing another 1748 feet, we reach Wai'ale'ale. It captures the clouds rolling across the Pacific.
Wai'ale'ale gives us a glimpse of the Na Pali Coast.
We drove from the summit to the beach at Barking Sands aka Pacific Missile Range Facility. Given its remote location, Barking Sands offers seclusion.
