English Narrative

04-Oct-2012 -- 昨天成功地寻访了40°N 124°E后,下午四点多从丹东坐火车到沈阳,未出站既转乘去通化的夜车,早上七点到通化,拼车经白山前往湾沟。

九点多到湾沟。沿092县道骑行,路牌指示离松树镇21公里,九点三刻到平川村,在平川村三岔路口打听去暖泉子后山的路,被告之走左手的大道,当时我感觉应走右手的小路,因出行前我在google地图上看到这个汇交点距暖泉子后山村七百米,到平川村应再直向东到暖泉子后山村。

当时因左手是大道,我的时间紧,计划要赶12:07松树镇到松江河的火车,就选择了走左手的大道。见到西川村的路标时已是十点十分,GPS的经度指示接近127度,到西川村时GPS指示CP完全在西川村以南。于是找到进村的路,一出村到对面山口间是一大片玉米地,看不到路,老乡说沿小道可到暖泉子后山村,往返行程至少要一个多小时,GPS显示离CP还有2.71公里,于是决定放弃再接近CP。拍照取记录后返回092县道。

在这晚秋季节,092县道沿路风光极美,铁道与五彩的山峦和湾延的汤河并行,金色的秋天令人淘醉。十二点正赶到了很古朴又有历史感的松树镇车站,松树镇到松江河镇票价仅4元五角,五分钟后火车就来了,一路欣赏山野秋色,下午二点到松江河镇。松江河镇是游览长白山天池西坡的必经之地。

下一步我要寻访的是最靠近长白山天池西坡的汇交点42°N 128°E
