Devil's Armchair

Fiordland is massive. Our camp here at 3300 feet was less than a kilometer from Milford sound, sea level. We camped in this valley hoping to find rare Sinbad Skinks. It's a paleoglacial rampage on the West coast, three hours from my house on the pastoral East coast. On this island, it's possible to live on the Pacific plate, but commute to the Australasian one. We're packing up again tonight hoping the weather will hold for another lizard search.
