"Mini" post - South Island Trip Photos!

Here are a bunch of photos from our South Island trip last month around Queenstown and our trip to Milford Sound. We also had a day trip driving to Glenorchy. I'm going to drop a bunch of the photos here without much info just so I can get it posted along with a few other things before I feel too sick again. I'll put most under the cut. I have to say that the star ones are something I've been wanting to try a long time and am glad I got the chance to do it.

Another pict of the view. Check out the hugely long waterfalls & the trees at the base of the mountain for some sense of scale!
