Milford Sound

We headed towards Milford Sound and stopped at the closest campground to it.  The campground was in a temperate rainforest (i.e. chilly but beautiful green scenery.) 

We arrived around 8 pm and found a full campground...but there is always room for one more.

 This was our view from the campground.

The clouds rolled in as the night moved on.

The views from the short walk we took around the area.  The sun didn't set until 10:45 pm so we had quite a bit of time to look around before the sun went down.

We got up early the next morning to drive an hour to Milford Sound to catch the earliest cruise from the Sound out to the Tasman Sea at 9am.

The weather was beautiful, as was the fiords.

The following are views that we saw:

The cruise was beautiful.  We would have loved for it to be longer.
We got back into our car and headed away from the Sound.  This is a hand-dug one-way tunnel that we drove through on the way out of Milford.
