We had planned on visiting Milford Sound, but the day that we planned to go, a sizeable snow storm brought meters of snow and avalanches to the Milford Road. Instead, we switched our trip to Doubtful Sound, and we were not disappointed! The journey to Doubtful Sound takes you first across Lake Manapouri by boat. Here is one of the views from on the lake. The streaks on the mountains, we were told, were likely “tree avalanches.” Loose trees fall and take all the other trees below them.
