Photo: Rock domes in Kynoch Inlet, Fiordland Recreation Area
Yesterday's rain is gone and the fog is just lifting as we leave Rescue Cove. It's a beautiful calm morning so we motor up Matthiesen Channel to Kynoch Inlet. As we turn into the inlet, the wind comes up blowing into the inlet so we raise the jib and drift up inlet, admiring the scenery. Like Roscoe Inlet, Kynoch Inlet is a fjord but it's even more magnificent with rock domes, even taller black cliffs, waterfalls and gouges on rock walls where glaciers ground them out. We also find a couple of pictographs.
