We lucked out with the weather! Here we are overlooking Doubtful Sound after leaving the small, town of Te Anu. Not much of interest to post there except it is on the largest lake in the south island and (obviously) gorgeous. It's the beginning of many journeys into the wild treks of the southland. We are going deep into it . . . but not roughing it. You can peek the Sound beyond us as we traveled over the most expensive road ever built in NZ. It was built in the 1960's to construct an amazing hydro energy turbine/tunnel system - all without using a dam.
This is the sound we will spend the night on in a comfy boat. Now, the van takes us downhill to embark.
