Shaggie,

By the way, after toting this thing around for four years after our visit down there, I finally got it installed on my Aerostich suit a few months ago.

and about time Timba!!

Here's the last set of new pics



Eglinton Valley scenery



The entrance to the famous Homer Tunnel – the Homer Tunnel road has not have a very salubrious winter this year – with record snow build up on the peaks above and all time high numbers of avalanches, the road was closed for a good portion of the chilly season.



Looking west at the tunnel entrance, over the hill is Milford Sound.





See the ‘tiny’ boat?

What Camera?

Hey Shaggie, excellent photos of one of my favorite places on this planet. Awesome composition and the colors on 'em are stunning which begs the question of what camera or cameras and lenses do you use?

Shane,
Great pics and now I am getting very excited (and nervous) re my upcoming trip. Route is planned and pretty much set. Still looking into places to stay. Want to have a short-list to carry with me and then decide where to stay as I ride.
Off to pack since I leave on the 26th for Oz first before arriving in NZ.

Cheers & great pics!
Ggirl
