加拿大落磯山公園群之旅D9 Glacier National Park、Emerald Basin Trail (2017.06.16)

Emerald Lake and Michael Peak in Yoho National Park 3
Emerald Lake and Michael Peak in Yoho National Park 

今天原計畫遊覽加拿大英屬哥倫比亞省的冰川國家公園(Glacier National Park),行前已得知該國家公園幾個景點都是走好久的冰川,而且此時都還處於封閉季節,加之今天氣象預報該公園是雨天,所以決定開車進去公園走走就好。

Brookside Motel出發,出了小鎮沿Trans-Canada Hwy/BC-1 W公路西北行,行約77公里進入冰川國家公園(Glacier National Park)範圍,雨勢不小,根本無法下車,就是下車也無景可看,兩側山頭罩滿烏雲;這種天候下我們決定開車到羅傑斯隘口(Rogers Pass)的遊客資訊中心參觀一下就好,重點擺在下午的翡翠湖(Emerald Lake)健行。

09:25 進入Glacier National Park範圍。

冰川國家公園(Glacier National Park)位於加拿大英屬哥倫比亞省的落磯山脈上,東部通往幽鶴國家公園(Yoho National Park),西部通往勒維斯托克山國家公園(Mt. Revelstoke National Park),公園以冰川和鐵路博物館著名。該公園建於1886年,佔地約1394平方公里,有加拿大太平洋鐵路和橫貫加拿大公路貫穿,冰川退縮後留下許許多多美麗的山川、湖泊、瀑布等,風景從大到小都變化萬千,非常精緻。

09:50 抵達羅傑斯隘口(Rogers Pass)的遊客中心;

雨勢不歇,遊客中心人員的解說就如行前得知的訊息相符,此季節還不適合登山健行,我們在遊客中心參觀後回頭開回旅館,準備下午到翡翠湖(Emerald Lake)健行。



回到Golden後用完中餐後開車到翡翠湖(Emerald Lake)。



13:50 抵達翡翠湖(Emerald Lake),今天我們預計走Emerald Basin Trail。

Emerald Basin Trail含兩部分路段,一段是Emerald Lake環湖一圈,全長約5.3公里,另一段是從Emerald Lake的西北角往西北登上Emerald Basin,全程來回約5.8公里,兩段合計11.1公里,爬升約240公尺。

14:00 從Emerald Lake 停車場起登,由遊艇船屋後方順時鐘方向沿湖邊步道北行,沿途野花遍開,步道寬敞好走。

此後山徑轉為陡坡,山徑也較為原始難走,前段數百公尺是較為陡峭部分,爬升約一百多公尺,後面近兩公里則蜿蜒穿過冷杉、雲杉和雪松,步道在森林及矮灌木林間緩升。

這一段環湖步道比前半段長了約兩倍距離,步道也因融雪關係泥濘不堪,異常難走 。
