Mackenzie Country

I received this nice landscape view card with a Titanosaurus stamp from Annie (Wildfire in the forums) for Turkey X World RR, Special Group 4. Annie says, "The Mackenzie Country is one of the more inland areas of the South Island, so it is very hot in summer and very cold in winter. There are lots of man-made lakes in the region as well, for hydro-power."
On the card we also see the Church of the Good Shepherd, which was built in 1935 as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie Country in South Canterbury. The church is situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo.
