Bluebird lake 健行賞花(2009.06.29)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

步道概述:

Wild Basin Trailhead 屬於洛磯山國家公園範圍內,位在美國大陸洛磯山脈分水嶺(Continental Divide)的東邊,介於Meeker ParkAllenspark兩小鎮之間;若走7號公路(CO-7)Estes Park南下約13哩處右轉,沿Wild Basin Road西行,半哩後抵達Copeland Lake,再走約2哩的狹窄石子路即抵達登山口--Wild Basin Trailhead

Bluebird Lake Trail由登山口出發,0.3哩後會經過上、下兩處Copeland Falls1.8哩經過Calypso Cascades2.7哩抵達Ouzel Falls,這是一個不小的瀑布,一般遊客大都只到此便折回。經Ouzel Falls續往上行,3.1哩處遇Thunder LakeOuzel Lake的岔路,右往Thunder Lake、左往Ouzel LakeBluebird Lake

取左經一小段的陡坡後上到一開闊地形,此地在1978年遭森林大火焚毀,現在是白木林與新生小松樹、小白楊木(Aspen)雜處區域,路旁都是冰磧石或冰磧丘(Moraine,為冰川融化後遺留在地面上的冰磧物),由於小樹未成林所以地面長滿野花、野草,尤其是Golden Banner(Golden Pea)最多;金黃的一片,煞是美觀。在此地更把鄰近的洛磯山脈群山一覽無疑,通過此開闊地形來到距登山口4.4哩處遇一岔路左下,0.5哩處是Ouzel Lake,右直行2哩到Bluebird Lake經過一片松樹林後出森林線,再爬約0.5哩的岩石地形即到達Bluebird Lake

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

登山口:Wild Basin Trailhead(海拔8,500/2,591公尺)
