Milford Sound Cruise
"Puget Sound on Steroids!" is how one a couple from San Diego described the Milford Sound here in the Fjordlands of New Zealand. I would have to agree, but even that statement doesn't give it enough credit. It was spectacular. By the way, I am skipping our day in Dunedin and beautiful drive for time/mb sake. Turns out we are limited in internet use at most locations, hence few pictures as well. We woke up early in Te Anau and drove some of the most beautiful miles I have ever seen in my life up to Milford Sound. It is only about 70 miles, but it took us a little over 2 hours without any stops (we made those on the way back). Huge mountians, deep valleys, big rocks, tight turns, crazy steep tunnel, one lane sections with bridges, and all driving stick shift on the opposite side of the rode. It was awesome!!!
