Shrine Mountain Trail 登山健行(2014.07.12)

行車資訊:
由丹佛沿I-25州際公路西行,行約70哩後於Exit 190下交流道左轉,過橫跨高速公路高架橋後續左行到休息區不取,取右上循“Shrine Pass Rd.”土石路朝西上山,行約2.3哩後即抵路左登山口(Trailhead),登山口有一停車場及廁所,但旺季停車場常車滿為患,必須將車停放路旁。
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

登山口高度:海拔11,040 (3,365公尺)
Shrine Mountain高度:海拔11,888(3,623公尺)
爬升高度:來回約1,100(335公尺)
登山里程:來回約5(8公里)
登山時間:4小時30
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
從停車場沿一條通往Shrine Mountain Inn的碎石路走一小段路,在柵門前即看到路左的“Shrine Ridge Trailhead”指示牌,隨即
往南走入一片大草原邊緣的小徑;

一開始的大草原及遍地野花就讓人心曠神怡,眼光掃過大草原,極目望向東南邊山谷遠處是滑雪勝地的
Copper Mountain 滑雪場及後方的Tenmile Range。大草原上一男二女在此作畫,真是畫中有畫!

步道往南緩下坡前進,也許是最近雨下得多蠻泥濘的,但從步道旁willows樹叢中又走出幾條清晰的捷徑看來,也許是此步道本就是較潮濕的沼澤地吧!
步道下到最低處有一兩處水塘,繞過水塘步道開始朝西南爬升,但坡度很小,走來並不累人,兩旁陸續出現稀疏的松林,野花盛開。

從登山口走約
1.3 後開始進入松林並轉向朝西上行,步道比前段稍陡些,不久抵達Shrine Ridge下方一鞍部;

步道轉右朝西北幾顆巨石間山坡道上行,此段是整條步道較陡難行路段
(其實還好啦)
