Loveland Pass登山賞雪(2010.11.12)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Loveland Pass位在US-6號公路上,海拔11,990 呎 (3,650 公尺),是科羅拉多州落磯山脈的一個高山隘口,它位在丹佛西邊Front Range的大陸分水嶺上,US-6號公路穿過此隘口,曲折陡峭的山路和髮夾彎行車不易。

US-6號公路由丹佛西行有很大一部分是和70號州際公路(I-70)共用的,在現今70號州際公路216哩到205哩(Dillon,Silverthorne)這一段還沒興建艾森豪(Eisenhower Tunnel)隧道以前,是從Exit 216開始循蜿蜒的山路上山,越過落磯山脈分水嶺(Continental Divide ),也就是Loveland Pass,然後再陡下進入Arapahoe Basin,經過Keystone接回70號公路(全長20哩)。這一段路的東端是Loveland Ski Area,西邊則是Arapahoe Basin Ski Area,都是離丹佛不遠的滑雪勝地,由於道路彎曲陡峭,在在冬季下雪的季節是特別危險的,常因大雪而封路。自從1970年代Eisenhower Tunnel建好後,除了Trucks以外的車輛都可直接由70號公路穿越隧道,避開此路段。Loveland Pass為紀念William A.H. Loveland(19世紀末Colorado Central Railroad的總裁)而命名。

Loveland Pass目前除了大型貨卡車通行外,就數觀光客和登山客最多,因為車行在這條路線上不僅可近距離親近滑雪場,更可在最高點的分水嶺上飽覽群山之美。
