We hit the rough Gibb River Road again today for about an hour ride until we reached the Bell Gorge. This is a stunning Gorge with a cascading waterfall. During the summer wet season it must be a raging torrent. Now it it merely a moderate flow.

We arrived at the top of the waterfall and decided to head to the bottom pool. This entailed a strenuous hike up a hill over boulders and then down on the other side. Everyone was hot and looked forward to jumping in and swimming up to the falls. The swim was strenuous with the falls creating a strong current, always pushing us away.

It was a delightful spot with a nearby area for a picnic lunch, What a great way to finish an active morning!
