07:00 整裝後由登山口出發,此登山口已爬過兩次,不陌生。開始是之字形上坡,一路行走在杉林中,偶而沿著左側的Roaring River而行,轟隆隆的流水聲一路相隨。

07:43 回望來時路,從樹縫中遙望Longs Peak,山上仍有積雪。

湛藍的天,碧綠的湖,積雪未退的高山,加上湖岸萬紫千紅的野花,這真是人間仙境呀!

在此回望Lawn lake靜靜躺臥在山谷之中,就像畫家畫筆滴下的湛藍油彩。

11:20 The SaddleMummy Mountain的叉路,此地海拔約12,000/3658公尺。取右越過小溪開始朝Mummy Mountain攀登,眼前是一大片岩石坡,根本就沒有路徑,只能抓準目標自尋途徑上攀,不時在岩石上攀爬,又加上高海拔空氣稀薄,真累人!

沿途俯看Crystal Lakes就躺臥在Fairchild Mountain的懷抱裡,湖面上尚浮著一層薄冰呢!
