New Zealand

Milford Sound

The drive from Queenstown to Milford Sound not for the faint of heart. Winding mountain roads and a spectacular view aside, the avalanche warning signs can neither be missed nor ignored. While the drive and trekking trails are great, cruising this fiord is a must. Leave at least one day for the cruise and short treks. MilfordSound.jpg (10054 bytes)

Beware the cheeky Keas.These alpine parrots abound at some scenic pulloffs and have developed a taste for car rubber. One rogue bird flew at my head everytime I tried to get back into my car.
