上週六丹佛華人登山隊前往James Peak Wilderness區內攀登Forest Lake,該湖泊登過多次,今年七月才獨登過一次,所以並不陌生;通往該區內登山口的E. Portal road (Rollins Pass)道路兩旁及登山口附近有蠻多的白楊木(aspen),這段時間正是葉子轉黃的尖峰期,登山兼賞葉真是一舉兩得!

10:30 來到 Arapaho Creek,有一木橋橫跨而過,七月來登此湖時木橋毀損的木欄杆已修復,此處海拔 9,877/3,011公尺,距登山口約1.75 哩;

過了木橋後步道沿著Arapaho Creek右岸陡升,一路在杉林中穿行,途中兩度經過Arapaho Lakes Trail的岔路,但已荒廢且以倒木擋住,應已封閉;早在8年前登Arapaho Lakes時就有國家森林管理員宣稱Arapaho Lakes Trail不再繼續維護,也不再推薦給登山客,或許這岔路口的指示牌早被拆除荒廢了。
