The second day we tackle the steep hike up to Robinsons lookout. “Mirador de Selkirk”
Big eucalyptus trees grow up the mountain side.
High up is the remains of Selkirks mountain shelter.
A short stop to catch our breath and drink some water.

In some places the track is dug out in the mountain side.
