199 - 8th August 2006 - Milford Sound


Heading towards Milford


The road into the mountains


The entrance to the Homer Tunnel - It's like driving down a giants throat


But this is where you burst back out into the sunlight


Our Mitre Peak cruise ship


The mountain after which the cruise line is named - the Mitre Peak


Mitre Peak


Looking back towards the 'town' - for want of a better word


Pip and Chris in Milford Sound


Jagged cliff edges and the different colours are different elements in the rocks


Fur Seals sat on the rocks


Spot the Fur Seals


Water tumbling over the cliff tops


Looking back towards the Sounds


Looking towards the Tasman sea


The little white splodge near the top left is the lighthouse at the end of the sound


Inside the boat


Sharp shadows


One of three major waterfalls


Chris, bad hair, and a waterfall


On the way back to the town


Bowen waterfall


The last waterfall - there used to be a walkway to it but it washed away


The Chasm


Water pours through the rocks creating these strange structures


River leading to the Chasm


Looking across to the peak


Looking back down the valley


This cliff is where the Homer Tunnel starts


Snow


Avalanches by the side of the road


Waterfall by the side of the road


The river


Lake by the road


Mirror pool
