Day 1: Port Renfew to Michigan

先来一张 WCT Trail Map,我把它分成两张图,这样看起来清楚些:


自从决定走WCT后,我们做了充分的准备,尤其是背包负重体能训练,几乎每个周末都背着包到户外走十多公里,有的在背包里装几本书,还有的装上两袋大米。大家还陆续升级了露营的装备,万事俱备,25日下午大家背着沉甸甸的背包踏上了旅途。

在温哥华转机到Victoria机场已经是深夜了,先行到达的队友在机场租好了车,我们开车直奔南端的起点。
这次,我们是注册的从北端的Pachena 走到南端的Gordon River,所以要先开车到南端的PORT RENFEW,将车停放在那里的停车场,然后再乘坐trail bus 到达北端的起点。

清晨,到达了WCT的南部PORT RENFEW 的visit centre:

PORT RENFEW 是个小镇,不多的房子排列在道路的两旁:

我们在小镇上的一个小餐馆吃了早餐。10点钟与其他hiker 一起坐上了前往北端起点的Bus。

同车前往trailhead 的阳光美女4人组,她们计划5或6天走出trail:

在trailhead的info centre 填表登记,并有那里的工作人员作了40多分钟的Orientation,详细讲解了每段的trail, 以及安全事项,并告诉我们,未来的7天里只有第二天有雨,其余的都是晴天时,顿时响起了一片掌声。出发前,我们每人都秤了下背包,女生的背包在40-45磅左右,几位男队员的背包是50-55磅重。

下午两点钟,我们背着行囊出发了:

刚开始爬这样的木梯真是气喘吁吁:

从这里到世界各地的距离:

阳光下是像蓝宝石一样耀眼的海面,而心情就像在碧蓝的海水里洗过又放在沙滩下晒干了一样畅快清爽。

经过4个多小时,12公里的跋涉,我们夜宿Michigan营地。
