A 'Sound' is a a body of water which is not made by glacier action...it can be from rising sea levels or subsidence of land. So Milford Sound is really Milford Fiord, lol.
We noticed that the sunrise made the sky red...and the old saying of my mother came to mind...'red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning' and how true that was to be. Yep it rained constantly :-( But the views were still magnificent. We booked with a different company to the one we used in 2004 and we had more stops at points of interest along the way this time. So the trip there took just on 2 hours.
|This was our first photos' stop....wonderful views of the mountains but the grasses in the front of the photo are some native grasses that were almost wiped out by white settlement for farming and grazing.|
|Looking the other way at Mirror Lakes...|
|The other side of the road from the blue waterfall...the water there is blue as well.|
