Milford Sound

Here's a new photo I took of Milford Sound a few days ago. There's many cool facts about this fjord... one of the wildest ones is that Captain Cook sailed right by it when he was mapping out New Zealand and never saw it. When you are looking at it from the ocean, you can't even tell that it opens up into this tremendous scene. I can only imagine what it was like for the first person to sail up into it, as it wasn't even really accessible any other way (now there is a road and a tunnel).
