Sound Bound

The drive from Te Anau to Milford Sound can only be described as absolutely insanely fucking crazy gorgeous. Truly. Read any historical account on the journey, and I am certain it will say just that.

Endless peaks disappearing into stark white misty clouds. Waterfalls plummeting mere feet from the road on your left, while a rushing river topples over boulders on your right. Sheer black cliffs with ice-falls sludging slowly towards the earth. This is the stuff of Jurassic Park and Lord of the Rings all rolled into one. I'm pretty sure this is where they coined the phrase, "pictures don't do it justice."

Jack, unfortunately, did not enjoy the experience nearly as much as we did.
