攀登落磯山國家公園Wild Basin 區內高山湖Sandbeach Lake (2019.08.31)

上週六登山隊前往Rocky Mountain National ParkWild Basin區內攀登Sandbeach Lake,該湖我在2006年曾攀登過,當年前往攀登時是在五月中,積雪未融,此次前往跟上次有著截然不同的景觀。

Sandbeach Lake的登山口位在Wild Basin入口收費亭的對面,該登山口停車位有限,總計約二十個車位左右,所以停車不易,但其實如果你常進出Wild Basin就會發現過了收費站後再行一百多公尺會抵達Copeland Lake,在Copeland Lake湖邊道路左側有蠻大的停車空間,一般登山客很少往那兒去停車,我們當天有一部車就是開到那兒停車;接著再往內行車約半哩路範圍內路旁有多處停車空地,所以停車應不是問題,只是要多走一些路就是了!

當陡坡山徑趨於平緩時表示已接近湖邊,此時會經過一座栓馬的木架,馬匹僅能栓在此處不能到湖邊。

Sandbeach Lake東北角是一片沙灘,沙灘後面高起稜線有許多Bristlecone pine,這一片沙灘應該是此湖之命名由來;湖的東岸則是一片大小不一的亂石,十幾年前登此湖時還算好走,我曾走到南岸的出水口,但現在亂石之間長了許多比人還高的小杉木,穿行不易,所以放棄到出水口一遊。
