Mitchell Falls - at last!

Shortly after leaving big Merten we arrived at the top of Mitchell Falls. Fiona cooled her feet in the water while John climbed up to find a good spot to take pictures.

We then hiked a few hundred metres upstream to a small set of falls and pools which was a great place to cool off and have our lunch.

After a pleasant hour or two we crossed the river to the viewpoint and took some more photos before heading for our 13:45 with our return transport. Yes, we have to own up...we cheated and took the helicopter back!  It was great to get the big picture from the sky. I took mostly video during the trip so will have to see if I can get some good stills from that later.

Once back at camp we borrowed kiosk Keith’s drill again and completed the repairs.  No showers in this bush camp so we tried the solar shower for the first time. Nice hot water after the day in the sun. 

End of a brilliant day!
