Our first nature outing was to Milford Sound. Don't know what a sound is? Neither do I. But that's ok because Milford Sound isn't actually a sound at all. It's a fjord. And a fjord is this. Thank goodness for Wikipedia, am I right?
We got on this here boat
And we saw some pretty cool things
We sat on the observation deck where you could see all the pretty things

|candid shot. See the difference?|
*Also, I need to again point out that I was under the impression we would be hiking the glacier, not around it. Therefore I dressed unnecessarily warm and way more rugged than necessary. I mostly just sweated through all my layers. As a result of my poor preparation and those heavy as boots, Earl makes an appearance throughout these pictures.*
|Here's B-rit modeling our hot as boots on the bus ride to the start of the hike|
And then we hiked through lots and lots of rocks. And yeah, well you get it.
As I mentioned, most of us still really enjoyed the experience. "How? How could you have enjoyed yourself when you were so clearly disappointed at the lack of glacier hiking?" (that's you at your computer speaking by the way.)
Meet Tour Guide Ken:
He gave me a crystal he found along the path... So I'm pretty sure that means we're engaged, right?!?
Moving on. The glacier moving has made the rocks into really cool shapes like this wave shaped rock:
And when you are blessed to come in contact with said rock, it only makes sense to take lots of mermaid/ surfer pictures
|Katelyn throwing off my little mermaid pose|
|I do mermaid dancing. It's a lot of floor work.|
|They were surfing. I was the surfboard. Do ya get it?|
|Just wanting to show off my cute outfit apparently. Earl? Is that you?|
|Well hey there Earl! Sweet backwards cap.|
|We cleaned off a spot so it wasn't actually covered in dirt, even though it looks like it. FYI.|
|"Not worth the risk" hahaha love it.|
