Milford Sound, New Zealand

Magical Scenery

Sometimes I think that standing at this spot and seeing this beautiful place was just a dream!  We felt doubly blessed on the day we were here because the tops of these rugged peaks were visible.  Much of the time they are shrouded in misty clouds and rain.  We returned a second time to Milford Sound, and that was the case; but even then, the scenery was magnificent with the landscape transformed by thousands of waterfalls.
