Mirror Lake

On the way to Milford Sound, we stopped at Mirror Lake. As with so many things on our honeymoon, it was amazing. As I made the last post, I realized that Mirror Lake really deserved its own, so here are the pictures.

To Milford Sound

On the 19th day of our honeymoon, we went on a cruise of Milford Sound. I must say, it is actually a fjord. Anyway, I used an entire memory card that day! The day we went was beautiful. The sun was shining, the drive to the sound was amazing and we made many stops along the way. The guidebook made suggestions of little hikes and places to stop. A couple of the places were closed due to construction or geological "instability" so we couldn't see everything we wanted to. But then, if we had, we probably would have missed our cruise!

During the drive, we stopped at Mirror Lake (it's the next post), saw some keas which are native to New Zealand, and drove through a tunnel. The tunnel was basically 1 1/2 lanes and was one way so we had to wait for a while before we could go through it. While we waited, we saw little waterfalls and the parrot.
