Mitre Peak Milford Sound

Mitre Peak is far and away the most famous landmark at Milford Sound. The highest peak in the fiord, it gets its name from how its shape resembles a bishop's mitre. When we set out on our cruise in the mid-morning, the fiord was completely enclosed with fog and you couldn't see Mitre Peak at all. However, by time we reached the Tasman Sea and turned back, the fog was lifting until clear blue skies were revealed.
