Lake Tekapo

We visited Lake Tekapo and area a while back. This bronze statue of a sheep dog was erected in 1968 as tribute to the important role these animals make to countless sheep farms in New Zee. Go dogs!

We were stunned by views of snowcapped peaks and area lakes as we tramped around Mt. John. The air is so clean and pure that an observatory sits atop the mountain.

I did not want to leave my rock. I think Statue of Sara should be erected right here!
