承前文: 加拿大落磯山公園群之旅D5之一~~Banff Gondola、Lake Louise  (2017.06.12)

Lake Louise時因為大好天氣忍不住又進去了一趟Lake Louise號公路西北行時路過1沿Banff離開12:15

12:50 離開 Lake Louise沿1號公路(Trans-Canada Hwy/AB-1 W)西北行駛約2公里後Alberta 93出口下交流道,朝Jasper西北行。

13:00 上了AB-93冰原公路行約3公里道路左側即是Herbert Lake,在其湖邊有一處野餐區,我們在此午餐,欣賞湖光山色後續往西北行。

13:50 烏鴉爪冰河(Crowfoot Glacier)。

聞名遐邇的烏鴉爪冰河(Crowfoot Glacier)是聳立在高速公路旁的斷崖絕壁與烏鴉爪山間流出的冰河,從絕壁上部開始,沿著斷崖上的平台橫向三向流出,而分成三岔的冰河看起來像是烏鴉的爪子(Crowfoot),所以因此而得名的,不過由於溫室效應導致的全球暖化使得最下方一爪後半段已溶化消失,而成目前的上方兩爪和下方一爪的一小截形狀,據專家推測全球暖化現象烏鴉爪冰河將於400年後不復存在;而在烏鴉爪冰河山腳下的湖泊就是弓湖(Bow Lake)。

13:55 烏鴨爪冰河再前行1.4公里即抵達弓湖(Bow Lake)。

弓湖(Bow Lake)是位於班夫國家公園(Banff National Park)和賈斯伯國家公園(Jasper National Park)的冰原公路旁的眾多湖泊之一,她是最接近弓河(Bow River)源頭的湖泊;弓湖(Bow Lake)的周圍環繞者三大冰河,分別是烏鴉爪冰河(Crowfoot Glacier)、弓河冰河(Bow Glacier)和瓦普達冰河(Wapta Icefield),湖面面積約3.21平方公里,湖水來自弓河冰川(Bow Glacier)融化的雪水;有名的Simspon's Num-Ti-Jah Lodge就建在湖的北岸。

行約6.1公里看到“Peyto Lake”和“Bow Summit”的指標左轉沿小岔路行約500公尺即抵達沛托湖(Peyto Lake)的停車場;停車場車滿為患我們即早將車停在兩百公尺外的路旁。

14:10 抵達沛托湖(Peyto Lake)停車場,由停車場西北角有一步道通往沛托湖(Peyto Lake)制高觀景點,單程約700公尺左右,爬升高度不到100公尺,沿途部分路段積雪未融,小心行走不難;另有一更高的觀景點~Bow Summit聽說也不難走,限於時間我們沒上去。

14:21 抵達沛托湖(Peyto Lake)觀景點,設有觀景平台,人潮蠻多的!

沛托湖(Peyto Lake)命名源自早期在Banff和Lake Louise一帶活動的山區嚮導和獵取動物皮革的獵人Ebenezer William "Bill" Peyto,該湖由Peyto Creek供水,水源則來自於Caldron Lake和Peyto Glacier(Wapta Icefield的一部分)下游流入Mistaya河。

俯瞰山谷中的Peyto Lake依偎在積雪山頭的Caldron Peak和Mount Patterson山腳下,那青綠又有點乳白的湖面由上往下看有點像顆星星,但更多的遊客寧願說她是片楓葉,因為這裡是加拿大!

15:13 經過The Crossing Gas Station and Store,這是一處服務區,有販賣禮品、食物的商店,但主要的是讓旅客休息、駕駛者為車輛加油、保養檢查的地方,招牌寫著過此站下一處加油站是153 公里以後,也就是說要到Jasper才有加油站。
