多倫多短途車程 ~ Crawford Lake 天空之鏡 美景醉人

4,504

遠足讓人鍾愛的地方,除給您充足的運動量,與及遠離煩囂清新的空氣讓污濁的肺部換換氣之外,沿途風景優美更是重要的誘因,如果當您一路走著,還有所得著,寓充電於學習,市儈一點,這趟遠足就太物超所值了。

小編去年到訪過在多倫多西面Milton的Crawford Lake遠足徑,就好像Kinder出奇蛋般滿足以上所有願望。四條在森林間圍繞著Crawford Lake的遠足徑可以帶著輕鬆的心情悠閒步行。

有森林做背景的湖景極度攝人,天朗氣清時,拍攝天空之鏡簡直so easy。坐下來凝望一陣子可以為您帶來平靜的心境,英文的peaceful大概是最佳的形容詞。

I was looking at the fish 🐠🐟

Confession time: I adore the outdoors, for many reasons. I do not adore bugs. Particularly the flying variety. The buzzing in my ears causes me to flail like a fool. I never run, unless it’s from bugs. Yes, I’m ridiculous. And today I neglected to bring my bug repellant on my after work hike. Tried to enjoy being outdoors as much as I could between swats. I’ll have to keep a mini spray in my bag to avoid a repeat occurrence. … .. . #nature #keepitwild #wildernessculture #womenforwildlands #getoutside #optoutside #whatgetsyououtdoors #instanature #naturelovers #girlswhoadventure #outdoorwomen #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorgirls #trails #hiking #trailsofontario #discoveron #forestbathing #yourstodiscover #outdoors #brucetrail #niagraraescarpment #trees #conservationhalton #haltonparks #sheexplores #meromicticlake #sun #sky

方才講過,Crawford Lake是一個得天獨厚的天然生態,它是一個罕有的meromictic lake,中文學名叫局部分層湖,或局部循環湖。由於湖底很深,只有上層的湖水循環,湖的下層部份幾乎處於靜止狀態,且氧份含量很低,科學家有機會發現遠古年代的動植物化石。

除上地理科,還有歷史課。該湖區亦是年代久遠的原居民聚居地。加拿大印第安族的易洛魁聯盟(Iroquoian)在15世紀時已於該處建立村莊。Iroquoian意譯為「居住在長屋的人們」,在1973年至1987年間,在該地挖掘到11間長屋及日常家居用品。該保育區遂在原地仿建了三間長屋,並於長屋內展覽原住民的日常生活和歷史。

挑選兩條trails走走,在湖邊拍拍照,調整思緒,再到小型博物館走一趟,最好就準備簡便午餐,在其偌大的草地來個悠悠的野餐,消磨完美的一天。
