Labor Day登高山湖Lost Lake(2017.09.04)

Lost Lake 7
Lost Lake



今天是美國的勞動節(Labor Day),本來要帶家人去登Brainard Lake Recreation Area園區的Blue Lake,沒想到車子開到收費亭前數百呎處便大排長龍,排了一陣子車子一動也不動,心想不知要排到何時,況且看此狀況依往常經驗裡面停車場也早已無車位,和家人討論後回頭改登Eldora附近的Lost Lake,隨即掉頭開回Nederland,將車子放在Park-n-Ride搭免費的Shuttle Bus到登山口Hessie Trailhead,因經驗告訴我此刻Hessie Trailhead的停車位早已客滿!

經此折騰抵達登山口停車處已將近是上午十一點鐘,隨即從登山口停車處出發。
