Karamea – Oparara Arches

A relaxed day driving up to the northern end of the West Coast. Stopover at the little Lake Hanlon with it’s funny echo. Passing Karamea town (which still doesn’t have cellphone reception). Lunch at the white sand beach next to it. Two short walks to the Oparara Arches. Stunning! Reaching the only gas station for 100something kilometers 5 minutes after they have closed. Buying 10l of fuel in a canister from the i-site for $25. Driving back home.
