Milford Sound, Part 2 - Key Summit

Milford Sound Part 1

After arriving at the Milford Sound Lodge, we settled into our room. The thing about Milford Sound is that it is relatively untouched. The only buildings that I saw while I was there were the buildings attached to the lodge, the ferry terminal and the airport buildings (which realistically looked more like small shacks than anything else). 897 more words
