登Boulder小鎮的Green Mountain(2017.07.19)

Jacob & I on the summit of Green Mountain

今天和太座、貝貝前往Boulder攀登Green Mountain,我們走一條最容易的步道--West Ridge TrailGreen Mountain West Ridge Trail的登山口就在Flagstaff Road的最高點,由此上Green Mountain1.4哩(2.24公里)的路程,爬升僅約600呎(183公尺),算是一條輕鬆的健走路線!

 

 
Green Mountain位在Boulder小鎮西邊,是洛磯山脈Front Range的山麓丘陵,海拔8,144(2,482公尺)Boulder就依偎在其山腳下。Green Mountain東面的幾片大石壁即是小鎮Boulder 的的標--Flatirons, 這兒是攀岩者最喜歡挑戰的場所;登上Green Mountain山頂可俯瞰整個Boulder市區和東部大平原,向西則遠眺整個Indian Peaks,是一座老少咸宜的熱門登山路線。

 

 
10:10 從登山口(海拔約7,550)起登;

此岔路後的約0.3哩才是較為陡峭且是粗躁的小徑,也只有這一段路稍有點像爬山的樣子。
