Twisted Horizon at Mirror Lake, NZ

10 Oct

New Zealand – on the way to Milford Sound

Part 1 –  here

Part 2 -Milford Sound

Mirror Lake

Are we there yet, are we there yet…..

NO! We have not reached Milford Sound yet, but, you get to see mirror reflections. Check out the photos below.

Signboard at Mirror Lakes

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the prettiest mountain of all?

No, I'm not twisted! Tis an art form, cherie!

Hmmp...I'm righted, happy now?

On the way to Milford Sound, the bus will stop at several locations – Mirror Lakes, being one of them. Mirror Lakes – you can see why it is so named by the reflections. It was bright sunshine, high noon, but still freezing! See the frost in the third picture? They hadn’t melted yet – the sun rays hardly reached the plants.

Watch out for the keas! Keas? Well they are the alpine macaws in these areas. Super intelligent, not afraid of people. They will steal the shoes of your feet if you remove them (the shoes, that is!) unattended. I kid you not!


We are almost there! Heading off to Milford Sound on the next post.
