-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
行車資訊:
從丹佛沿I-70州際公路西行,在Exit 228下交流道進入小鎮Georgetown,由Georgetown Visitor Center一路沿“Guanella Pass”南行;9.5哩抵Guanella Pass Campground,再行0.1哩遇右岔Naylor Lake Road,右轉Naylor Lake Road立即抵達Silver Dollar and Murray Lake第一登山口,小車停此,但車位很少(六七部左右),在右轉Naylor Lake Road之前道路左側另有一較大停車場。四傳車輛可沿Naylor Lake Road土石路續行0.7哩抵達第二停車場。
步程簡述:
印象中Naylor Lake Road路況不佳,所以我們將車停在第一登山口,開始步行上山,事後發現路況改善很多,四傳車輛開到第二登山口輕而易舉,可省下0.7哩且有點陡的路程。
11:50 第一登山口出發,海拔約10,880呎(3,316公尺),沿著Naylor Lake Road西行,一開始路好陡,下個馬威,沿路林間幾處營地有人在露營。

12:12 抵達第二登山口,海拔約11,200呎(3,414公尺),距第一登山口約0.7哩,路旁空地蠻大的,可停不少車子;道路續行通往Naylor Lake,那是一座私人湖泊勿進,Silver Dollar and Murray Lake第二登山口左岔小徑上山。

小徑先在松林間穿行一陣子後便穿越森林線,一路在Square Top Mountain北坡下爬升,偶而是岩石坡,偶而是高可及腰的willow樹叢,沿途俯瞰右側山坡下的私人湖泊Naylor Lake;此段山徑坡度不大,走來蠻舒服的。

13:30 抵達第一個湖泊Silver Dollar Lake,海拔 11,950(3,642公尺),距第一登山口約2.35哩,她安詳的躺臥在海拔13,794(4,204公尺)Square Top Mountain北坡下;休息一陣子太座還沒抵達,貝貝開玩笑地說阿嬤會不會卡在剛才的willow樹叢中過不來了!

13:40 續往Murray LakeMurray LakeSilver Dollar Lake約有半哩路,爬升約250呎,我和貝貝從Silver Dollar Lake的北岸沿小徑稍往西北爬升,沒多久即抵達Silver Dollar Lake的北岸稜線,海拔約12,200(3,719公尺)Murray Lake就在北邊幾十呎的稜線下。

14:04 下抵Murray Lake海拔12,150(3,703公尺),距第一登山口約2.85哩;此湖比Silver Dollar Lake小了一點,我和貝貝在湖邊繞一繞後下山,太座應該在Silver Dollar Lake等我們。

14:30 下山。
15:04 返抵Silver Dollar Lake,太座已在湖邊等候我們,稍作休息後一起下山。
15:50 抵達第二登山口,我叫貝貝在此等阿嬤,我下山開車上來接他們,可少走一點路。
16:00 半跑半走下抵達第一登山口,然後開車上第二登山口接太座及貝貝下山返家;下山途中才知道剛才在Guanella Pass下了一場不小的冰雹,厚厚的一層,乍看之下還以為是下雪呢!
