Mitre Peak, New Zealand

Mitre Peak at Milford Sound
Location: Fiordland, South Island, New Zealand

Here's another photo from our December 2007 journey through New Zealand.  This is Mitre Peak, situated at the head of Milford Sound in New Zealand's Fiordland National Park.   Mitre Peak is 1,692 meters tall, and is one of the most well known landmarks in the Fiordland.

I really love this one Bobbie :)

New Zealand is right at the top of my travel wish list.

BNS said...

Thanks, Claire. New Zealand deserves to be at the top of your travel wish list. It's definitely worth the effort it takes to get there. And when you do go, stay as long as you can. There's so much to see.

Hi David -

Yes, the sky was really clear that day -- at last, after several rainy days in a row, truth be known. I'm glad we decided to wait out the rainy days.

This picture is giving me what Germans called Fernweh. The opposite of homesickness (Heimweh), it means I want to travel.

Mark, you have my permission (and encouragement) to go straight to the airport. Have a great trip! :-D

That I like. NZ is wild and beautiful.

Hi Gerri -

Thanks for visiting. We thought the Fiordland was the most dramatically beautiful part of New Zealand. I took hundreds of photos there.
