本來打算到Brainard Lake更裡面的Mitchell LakeLong Lake走走,但因封路只好就近在野餐區用餐,用完中餐後時間尚早,決定再到落磯山國家公園的Wild Basin走走,現在正是Calypso Orchid(Fairy Slipper Orchid)的花開季節,看是否能碰上。

 

Wild Basin Area

此區屬於落磯山國家公園範圍,位處於Peak To Peak景觀公路(CO 7)Meeker Allenspark兩個小鎮之間,登山口海拔約8,500呎。因限於時間僅走到Calypso Cascades (單程1.8哩爬升700),很幸運的被我找到了不少我要的Calypso Orchid

Calypso Orchid

它有另一個好聽的名字叫做“仙女的拖鞋 (Fairy Slipper )”也有人稱它為“維納斯的拖鞋(Venus's slipper)”。

全株高約2-8吋,花的大小約一到一吋半,開花期是在5-6月。

生長在高山松林下潮濕的腐殖土中,不易被發現,所以有人認為能看到這種美麗的花是一種幸運。
