South Island, cont'd: Milford Sound to Queenstown
Queenstown has European alpine lake resort town atmosphere, but less traditional and younger in spirit. There are young visitors everywhere. A gondola rises from the center of town to a nearby mountain peak. Bill and Fikrye walked up to the top. I rode the gondola (duh!) and met them. There are neat observation decks, restaurants and cafes at the top. Also, luge tracks and most importantly mountain biking trails..... Don't for forget paragliding as well.
