NZ 2016 – Day 6 – Queenstown to Milford Sound – Part 2 – September 2016 – Milford Sound Highway and The Chasm

Te Anau Milford Rd and the Milford Sound Hwy

Leaving Mirror Lakes, we continued along the Te Anau Milford Road and the Milford Sound Highway. As you can see, the weather was pretty wet, but that just make the waterfalls even better!

Milford Sound Highway

We continued along the highway, and through the Homer Tunnel. This country was avalanche territory, so we didn’t stop, but I loved the views!

The Chasm

And stopped at The Chasm. The water here was running so fast it was so loud! We also saw the endangered and destructive Kea bird.
