行走在落基山脉 Day 7:The Notch

Day7 – Steep hike up from Curator to The Notch, and Signal campsite

这天从Curator 穿行 Notch 又到 Signal 营地的行程是整个trail 的精华。

不仅仅是它17公里的距离,爬升300米的高度

The Notch, a high, steep, challenging avalanche slope, windy mountain pass At the top of the Notch elev 2510m.

温哥华的同伴Daisy 说:

“Mother nature gave us a lesson of the Noble Truth, nothing is permanent. Whatever it is, it is. That is the way it is. “

由于Notch 的特殊地理环境,天气变化莫测,爱城的放风在几年前曾经走过这条Trail,Notch 那一段很难走,在大概2、3公里的trail 要爬高300多米,而且山口风很大,一层冰雪,气温在零度左右,山坡陡、滑,不能久停,所以大家最好一起通过Notch,在那里是无法等人的。所以,放风儿和温城的爬手带我们第二组先行一步,然后第一组(快组)的再跟上。

当天上午,风雪交加的the Notch:

风很大,说不好有几级风,背着包站立不稳,气温在零度以下,两手冻的通红。大家小心的走在雪坡上。

终于穿过了Notch,后背都是汗。

山峰上的天气变化莫测,反复无常。一会儿乌云密布、雨夹雪扑面而来,一会儿浓雾笼罩、寒风阵阵,一会儿云开雾散,太阳露出笑脸。。。

穿过Notch 后,我们继续向Tekarra 山峰前进。

在我们即将到达Signal营地时,只见一弯彩虹从山涧到崖底,映着青山绿水,分外美丽。

彩虹总在风雨后

Day 7 – 风驰电掣 神行太保又创新纪录

前几天的行程,我们队伍中的几位强人,背着近20公斤重的登山包,一路健步如飞,被誉为“神行太保”。

这是在Skyline Trail 的最后一天了。

因有大把的时间走出Trail,所以不慌不忙的吃过早餐,收拾行囊,向trail end 进发。

这次第一组的神行太保们又刷新了纪录: 从Signal campsite 到 trail end,距离 8.5公里,下降500米,负重12公斤左右,Edmonton的放风1个小时完成,小龚MM 1小时5分钟, wang3yi 1小时10分,温哥华的老虎是 1小时30分。 俺们第二组的2个小时到达Trail end.

至此,两岸三城的10位队员胜利完成了 Mount Robson 和 Jasper Skyline 的hiking + camping.

在6天半的时间里,爬雪山过草地,穿越独木桥和世纪冰川,沿着落基山脉的小径徒步近130公里,饱览了峰峦绝顶、冰川瀑布、常青森林、碧绿湖泊自然景观, so much fun…
