Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Fall Creek Unit:沿秋溪逆流而上 失落帝国依然美丽


henry cowell redwoords state park fall creek9

2016年7月23日,星期六,湾区普遍气温高达华氏90度以上。我们湾区黄页爬山摄影群这次选择了Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Fall Creek Unit,以躲避湾区的高温天气,独享清凉。我们这次的线路100%树荫遮盖,全程大约10迈。2015年8月22日我们第一次踏足此地,那时候估计是8迈,其实10迈比较准确,也有计步器显示12或者13迈不等。

由于我们这次有60多人参加,一下子把停车场撑爆了,不少人只能在外面路边寻找停车位,而此地的路边停车非常不容易。

我们在停车场一角稍微宽阔之处照合影,然后从Bennett Creek Trail下去,很快到Fall Creek Trail。有几个迟到的,后来追上了我们,其中还有方向跟我们走反了的,在山顶跟我们擦肩而过,还有在路上因严重堵车而打道回府的。

这样的意境今年依然没有改变。我们沿秋溪(Fall Creek Trail)逆流而上,一路泉水叮咚,十分宜人。

很快到一座小桥处,那里是South Fork Trail和Fall Creek Trail的分叉,需要往右沿着溪流继续往上。

茂密的红木,清新的溪水,我们欢乐的队伍边走边唱边跳,热闹非凡。

中途会看到一堆标志牌,不要疑惑,需要继续向前,逆流而上。

当你看到这个小标志柱时,请注意前方不远就是需要跨过小溪左拐上山处(Big Ben Trail),很多人一不小心就直行误入歧途而后不得不返回。我们的先锋队伍还在树上帮我们留下了记号,白纸上手书:Jack 左转。

之前的线路一直是小坡度上升,从这里开始,大约1.4迈是真正的上坡,稍微有一定的难度。

攻顶就是Big Ben Trail。我们在那里午餐、休憩、自我介绍,然后开始一路下山,寻找失落的帝国(Lost Empire Trail)。
