Jim Creek Trail 登山健行 (2019.07.05)

Jim Creek Trail,Winter Park (16)


The Jim Creek Trail 是一條位在科羅拉多Winter Park近郊原路往返的登山步道,登山客可依個人體力及心情決定登山健行里程,步道開始2~3哩是在松林樹蔭間步行,沿途觀賞盛開的野花,如果時間及體力許可更可作長達約10哩以上的登上James Peak(13,294 ft./4, 052 m)山頂行程。

Winter Park度假之旅第二天繼早上到Yankee Doodle Trail健行之後,下午又和女兒、小孫子貝貝及劉老先生到Winter Park近郊的Jim Creek Trail走走,該條步道較為難走,為顧及劉老先生安全只有我和貝貝祖孫倆走到步道約3.4哩處,女兒則陪劉老先生在步道前半段漫走。

沿兩公尺多步道往東南行,步道旁除少數雜木林外都是冷杉林,步道前一哩左右都很寬敞且高度僅微幅爬升,走來舒服!

女兒和劉老先生走一段路後要我和貝貝先走,他們不想走太遠,我和貝貝只好先行,沿途遇上不少下山的登山客。

14:40 抵一空地,左岔往河邊不取,取右岔進入林間直行,此處距登山口約1.7/2.72公里,海拔約9,905/3,019公尺;

此後路徑開始沿著Jim Creek河邊有感覺上坡,路況也開始變差;

部分路段積雪未融,須穿過雪原上行,積雪的狀況隨著高度的增加出現的頻率逐漸增加,期間多次積雪處及融雪造成小溪澗溪水上漲必須繞道,步道有些分歧,繞道後必須找回正途,影響前進速度。

15:35 來到步道看似盡頭,上頭傳來轟隆轟隆流水聲應是離所謂的瀑布不遠,但小溪右岸是一崩塌地形,攀越有點難度;

左岸依稀還有路徑,找到一處較安全處渡河,此處距登山口約3.0/4.8公里,海拔約10,330/3,149公尺。

祖孫倆也顧不得脫鞋,我手攙扶著貝貝,兩人小心翼翼地渡過寬約5公尺、水深及膝、流水有點湍急的Jim Creek,溪水由於是剛融過的雪水,冰凍得很,如泡水時間過久肯定受不了;

過了小溪後沿著左岸小徑開始陡升,右側斷崖下是湍急、大小落差的Jim Creek形成所謂的瀑布,嚴格說起來僅是一連串的流瀑吧!不過流水聲由於山谷的共鳴影響聲勢倒是蠻震撼的!

15:50 渡河過後再爬升約2~3百公尺抵達一座大岩石處,眼見前方路徑已全被積雪覆蓋難行,我們決定在此小休後下撤;此處距登山口約3.4哩,海拔約10,600/3,231公尺。
