Day 7 – Jasper – Maligne Canyon (碧玉公园第三天:玛琳峡谷)

  昨天在温泉认识一家父母,是到加拿大探亲和子女一起出来旅游的。说起来还算老乡,所以多聊了几句。他们去了不少地方,侃侃道来,如数家珍。这就提到玛琳峡谷,他们是昨天才玩儿的,一口说好。本来这几天觉得嘉士伯没什么地方可去,甚至有点后悔在嘉士伯住的天数太多了。又是接近旅游的最后一两天,大家都有些倦怠了。现在放着这么有名气的一个大峡谷,号称比美国那个还好,也不该错过了。顾不上是不是喜欢爬山了,好歹瞜一眼。

  说是峡谷,一路上水流蜿蜒,如大河从山中劈开的口子,奔流不息。

  我们从谷底向上走,难度大一些。走走停停,看白滔翻卷,时缓时急,隔断了两岸的人声。

  爸爸妈妈走的快,早把「不高兴」和「没头脑」甩的老远。一边照相,一边偷懒休息,可越走越热,一路总想问人还有多远。

  「不高兴」试验拍水的流动状态,貌似成功。

  终于到来最后的一片峡,鬼斧神工一般,尽显自然雕琢。

  可我也走不动了,即使下山的路也不想走了。「没头脑」自告奋勇跑下山去取车,开到山上的公园门口,接了我们回博卡红塔寺的木屋。

  刚才还累得不想动,一到住地又觉得这么早回来没玩儿够。要知道明天就回家了,怎么也该找个地方转转。突然想起来往北有个名牌经销商城,而且城镇一定比嘉士伯大许多。这几天没什么补给了,正好买菜购物。「不高兴」忙着整理照片,没心思随我们再跑那么远。吃了饭稍事休整「没头脑」和爸爸妈妈就出发了,临走嘱咐「不高兴」睡一会儿,毕竟上午从峡谷一头跑到另一头怪辛苦的。
  直勾勾的太阳从早晒到午后,我们顶着烈日就出发了。没想到半路就雷鸣电闪,瓢泼大雨,下起了冰雹。更没想到的是把「不高兴」留下了,遇上了一段惊险遭遇。因为是「不高兴」本人的亲身感受,现在我们就请「不高兴」同学自己来叙述一下这次历险:
Bear in Pocahontas Cabins  It had been raining, with wind, thunder and hail. But it quickly turned to sprinkle. Even the birds started singing. I was about to finish up organizing today’s pictures from the camera. I did not know why but stood up and looked outside. What amazing to me was that I did saw a bear walking by the edge of the playground, in the back of the lodge. We lived at the corner. The bear was at the other corner on the same side of the playground, about 100 feet towards our cabin. I was astonished but trying very hard to pick up my camera, change the lens, and step outside. I moved couple stairs down to the playground. The bear was getting closer to me but heading down to the bush and seemed looking for something. Afraid of drawing too much attention, I moved slowly away from the cabin to find a tree that I would not be easily seen while I could spot the bear with my camera, and also with open area behind me in case I had to run.
  While moving backward, I took several shots. But my hand was shaking and this zoom lens did not focus very well. Suddenly, the bear was walking to my direction. I almost ran before I saw it went back to the cabin direction. Then I was worried about not being able to get into the cabin if the bear really wanted to attack me. I kept taking pictures but they were not good. The bear probably did not see me at all, or it did not care. The closest distance between us was about twenty to thirty feet when it walked to me. But I was frozen with the camera as it came out no shots. Later, I wished I would not lose the last chance so that I approached up and shot as many as I could. Because now the bear walked away to the back of the cabin. I ran to other side of the cabin but did not catch any good shot. At this moment, a worker saw me running with the camera. He was really excited and asked me if it was a bear. I said I saw it walked into the bush. He told me that must be the baby bear he had seen the other day …

  ……好了好了,还‘鹰文’呢。就是一只儿童熊宝宝,只拍了几个背影儿,而且还没拍清楚。不过,总算是和黑熊瞎子的第一次侧面相遇、擦身而过,虽然没能友好地打个招呼,也可以说终不枉了此行吧。

Day 8 – Leaving Jasper (碧玉公园的告别:回家啦!)

  一大早就开上了由嘉士伯向西的十六号公路。原计划从不同的路线回家可以多看些风景。可天色阴阴的,这条路的景色也很一般。本来要在出加拿大之前歇脚一晚(第二天还能去温哥华泡个温泉),但「没头脑」归心似箭,毕竟在外面玩了那么多天,也够了,又想念吃一碗辣椒油面条,所以临时取消了住店,一口气开了十来个小时,直接回了家。经过坎姆鲁普斯镇之后,还特地去考思口店买了「不高兴」想要的橄榄油香皂。加上一两箱饮料,满载而归。

  至此,加拿大班芙─嘉士伯之旅算是圆满地画了一个顿号。因为班芙景色之美,让「没头脑」和「不高兴」决定以后还要再去一次。不过实在对野山野岭没兴趣,下次就不去嘉士伯了,可以在「幽后」国家公园多玩儿玩儿……
