實際行程:

08:45 從Bear Lake停車場出發,先到Bear Lake繞繞,今天風小、湖面如鏡,倒影美麗如畫!此地海拔9,475呎( 2,888公尺)。

繞完Bear Lake以後進入Flattop Mountain步道,步道旁白楊木黃葉早已落光,只剩光禿禿的枝條,冬將近、有點蕭條!

10:47 抵一處開闊點,海拔10,676呎( 3,254公尺),距Bear Lake登山口約2.0哩,此點已接進森林線,除了東南眺Longs Peak外,已可遠眺北方的Mummy Range。

11:05 整個傳統路徑完全被厚厚的積雪覆蓋,看不出一點痕跡,登山客已另闢出一條直通Emerald Lake Viewpoint的捷徑,跟著捷徑上登;此處已出森林線,海拔10,827呎( 3,300公尺),距Bear Lake登山口約2.06哩。

11:15 抵達Emerald Lake Viewpoint,此處海拔11,312呎( 3,448公尺),距Bear Lake登山口約3.0哩,Emerald Lake、Longs Peak一覽無遺。

過了 Emerald Lake Viewpoint以後的岩石山坡都是厚厚的積雪,完全看不到舊路跡,正確登山步道應是朝西北方向腰繞12,012’山頭,但登山客已朝西南邊的12,012’山頭直攻走出一條捷徑,我跟著左轉朝山頭直攻。

順著稜線再往12,012’山頭上攀,雪好厚,走起來很吃力!

12:30 抵達栓馬架(Horse hitching rack),此處海拔12,120呎( 3,694公尺),距Bear Lake登山口約4.0哩,山頂快到了,這條登山步道可騎馬上來,但馬匹不可越過此點,必須栓在這兒。

12:57 登頂Flattop Mountain,海拔12,324 呎( 3,756 公尺);諾大的高原都是白雪,原來佈滿山頂的岩石倒變成了白浪滔滔裡的暗礁。

今天上山時間和前幾次登頂差不多,雖然積雪難走,但因抄捷徑縮短距離,所以沒增加登頂時間。

13:10 在山上稍作停留後循上山路跡下山。

14:36 下抵Emerald Lake Viewpoint,續行下山。

15:34 返抵Dream Lake Overlook。

16:00 返抵登山口,遊客已少,整裝後開車回家,回家的路上又見到幾群Elk在路旁覓食,算來鹿群的活躍期也將結束,要聽到滿山滿谷的雄鹿求偶的嘶叫聲期待明年了!
