I love the energy at Kipahulu campground. And after such a full day, we needed some!

Haleakala National Park consists of two highway-accessible segments: The upper segment, including the summit, and the lower segment, which hugs the ocean along a stretch of the mountain's lower flanks. The lower section, known as Kipahulu, includes a beautiful open-access campground that was our goal for the end of this very busy day.

To say the place was crowded would be an understatement. Keith remarked that it looked like a refugee camp.

But in fact, it was quiet; even the rather large group that had set up in the center of the area didn't make noise we could hear over the ocean breeze.

And that was the music we listened to as we drifted off to sleep.
