From Refugio Charles to Caleta Bevan and back
Nice trek to the ocean (Bahia Windhound) and along the shore to an old abandoned farmhouse (Caleta Bevan) through nearly untouched landscape.
Pasing the beautiful Windhound Lake you can go south and try to cross the river, who is draining the Windhound Lake. But pay special attencion, this river is deep, powerful and cold. Alternatively you can go alongside the east shore of the river on the peat meadows and wood parts. It is notably much simple und safer.
On the coast of Windhound Bay you will find some camping spots on the west side. On the east shore site are lots of whale bones and perhaps a stinking whale cadaver. Around the abandoned farmhouse at Caleta Bevan you probably will see some horses and cows, now living wild there.
