Bells Gorge and another free camp…
Bells Gorge is another gorgeous gorge.
You need to cross the water if you want to climb down to swim below the falls.
The people sitting along the rocks at the top of the waterfall show the scale of this gorge.
It is a steep and rocky climb down, but the bottom pool is great for a swim.
Unfortunately by the time you climb back up the cliff and trek back to the car, you are hot again!
From Bells Gorge we moved on to yet another free camp, March Fly Glen. Happily there were no march flies, and it was quite a lovely spot with water lilies, pandanus and a crystal clear creek.

Kay departing March Fly Glen free camp. Kay is a very interesting person we met several times at various places along the Gibb River road.
As a very special birthday present to herself, for a very special birthday, she is undertaking a solo bicycle trip from Katherine, to Kununurra, then right along almost the entire Gibb River Road, then down Leopold Downs Road to the Great Northern Highway. From there she will ride to Halls Creek, and turn into Duncan Road (also a dirt road) for its full length, and from there return to Katherine. What a marathon effort. She carries everything she needs on her bike or single-wheeled trailer.
