Milford Sound, New Zealand

Milford Sound (7.000+ views!), originally uploaded by msdstefan.

Milford Sound is the most famous fjord in New Zealand . Usually it rains here for about 300 days every year! That adds up to about 8 metres of rain!!! We had to wait for one week in the next town to see it like this.
The mountain to the left rises just over a mile (1692 metres) above sea level. It's called Mitre Peak.
The two mountains on the right are the Elephant and the Lion, because of their shape. There is a huge waterfall coming out of the Elephant's trunk!
