由Fourth of July登山口攀登高山湖泊Diamond Lake (2019.07.31)

Diamond Lake (8)
Diamond Lake 


The Diamond Lake Trail位在Indian Peaks Wilderness範圍內,登山口是由Arapaho Pass Trail進入,Arapaho Pass Trail的登山口在靠近小鎮NederlandFourth of July Trailhead,該步道走過多次,但真正走到Diamond Lake卻僅一次,因每次去該步道主要是去拍攝該步道特有的野花~ Shooting Star FlowersGlacier Lily和一種少見的野生蘭~ Calypso(仙女拖鞋蘭, Fairy Slipper Orchid),這幾種野花的花期是六月份,而六月份要上到Diamond Lake的步道積雪還蠻厚的,所以每次都半途折返,而今年特地延後上山,當然這三種較罕見野花花期都已過,暫且貼出早期所拍的照片過過癮了。
