Oparara Basin 2: the walk to Moria Arch

Meg and I returned on our own for a second visit to the Oparara Basin.  We took a lovely walk through the rain forest old growth to the Moria Arch, a limestone arch formed by the erosion of a cave. It was named because of its resemblance to filming locations in Lord of the Rings.
