That’s Mirror Lake, which is on the wayto Milford Sound.
And that’s one of my most favorite pictures from the whole trip.
We took a bus ride to Milford Sound from Queenstown, which is a four-hour drive. The last two hours are filled with particularly beautiful scenery …
Once at Milford Sound, we took a scenic cruise on the fiord. [Doesn’t that word take you back to elementary school geography? So, to refresh your memories, like mine needed, a fiord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides, created in a valley carved by glacial activity, as Wikipedia words it.] Needless to say, it was magnificent.
That’s Mitre Peak in the center. It’s the most famous peak
around Milford Sound, and probably in all of Fiordland.
And not only was it beautiful. We also saw dolphins, seals and a penguin just living their lives.
[Yep, more photos are out there. Check my Facebook album.]
