之九: 探寻Paria River

Paria means “muddy water” in the Paiute Indian language,那里的河水很浑浊. 沿 Paria River 有条长39 英里的backpacking/hiking线路,没有trail 标记,沿着Paria river 河床行走,北端White House trailhead靠近 The BLM Paria Canyon Rangers Station, 89号公路21/22 mile 标记处附近,南端在Lee’s Ferry on Colorado River.

这条trail 是行走在Paria河谷里,周边是红褐色的岩石,脚下是粘脚的烂泥和干枯的河床。在出行前我们已做好了要趟水的准备,在MEC购置了Neo paddling socks,这种袜子虽然不防水,但在冰凉的河水中可以起保暖的作用。10月份,天气比较干旱,有的地段河床干裂,有的地方水深过膝,我们只走了靠近北端的一小段,往返13公里,途中遇到几批从南往北走的backpacker,其中一位还在大背包上挂着一个大轮胎,以防不测的洪水。

The Windows on the Paria:

如果有机会在backpacking 一定会是完全不同的体验。
