南橫之春

IMG_0316 冬末春初的午後,我們幾乎是靜謐南橫山道上唯一一部車。沒有特定目標的旅行,見到好景就駐車欣賞。 IMG_0281 行至半山,路旁出現花海。正要開著貨車下山的老夫妻親切地跟我們說,狗已經綁好了,可隨意賞花。 IMG_0283 梅桃櫻李,是哪種花呢?仔細觀察,花沒梗,又花葉齊放,大概是桃花吧! IMG_0289
順著山坡上的小徑走入花樹間,發現見不到盡頭,剛剛遇到的那對老夫妻應該是在此座山谷中種桃的果農。

在此賞花不用人擠人,不用躲相機腳架,彷彿誤入桃花源。 IMG_0297 想想,這是頭一回在深山中的果園賞花。 IMG_0302 想起每隔一陣子網路上就會瘋傳「世界上最美的小路X條」,文中的路大多是被花樹圍繞,那眼前的這條桃花路也稱得上其一了吧! IMG_0304 Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, 
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

走著走著,前方出現叉路,更讓我想起美國詩人Robert Frost的名詩「The Road Not Taken」。同樣的心境,我選擇右邊這條。

告別了山谷裡的桃花源後,我們來到霧鹿。

在馬里蘭溪畔,遇見一片山壁上的浪漫。 IMG_0322
走上已成危橋的霧鹿舊橋,仰望這片山櫻花林。

絕壁之櫻,依舊是初體驗。 IMG_0335 藏身山林深處的春,孤芳自賞。 IMG_0331 春訪南橫,發現山裡的祕密花園。
