The Color and Enchantment of Guangwu Mountain
Every year at this time, everything is red and yellow; In the annual red leaf season, so called the Mid-Autumn festival, the frost has reached the peak and retain until it is covered by winter snow; Every time the season gets closer, all magazines, web pages, WeChat platforms start to make special report of red leafs in autumn. It should be no surprise for that autumn is the most attractive season.
Hence, various kinds of autumn leaf lists emerge in constantly. The various autumn scenery recommendations are overwhelming. The most beautiful thing in the visitor's mind can be a lot of things. However, it is very strange that in the red leaf recommendation of Sichuan province, the red leaves of the Micang Mountain on behalf of the Guangwu Mountain are always listed on the list.
Micang Mountain, the southern foot of the Qinba Mountains, is also the natural dividing line between north and south China. From the viewpoint of geology, Micang Mountain is located in the former land area of Qinling Mountains orogenic belt and it is a pleated mountain formed by the multiple layers. It is the natural barrier of the northern fringe of the Sichuan Basin and the transition of the Sichuan Basin and the Qinba Mountains. To exaggerate a little, it is also the transition zone of the geographic climate of our country.
When search for the three words "Micang Mountain" on Baidu, the result is surprising. "Micang Mountain national nature reserve” is located in Sichuan Wangcang, Sichuan. Micang National Forest Park is located in Nanjiang, Sichuan. Baidu encyclopedia said Micang Mountain is across Ningqiang, South Zheng, three counties in Zhenba, as if it has no connection with Sichuan.
The confusing and dazzling leafs make people messy. In fact, it is all because of one line ” the red leafs in Micang is the best”.
There should be no objection to say that the beat scene of red leaves should be Guangwu Mountain. Guangwu Mountain’s name comes from the Sichuan dialect “there is only fog in the mountain", which means the mountains are covered by fog all year. The north and south is divided clearly and the east comes across the west. The special geographical location has given birth to a variety of natural ecosystems. In particular, Micang Mountain is famous for the "living fossil" as the native land and mountains and rivers, and the best in the red leaves.
The red leafs on Guangwu Mountain are of many kinds. There are more than 40 varieties like light green, the red maple tree, basswood, rose and so on. And there are more than 20 varieties of shapes like palm, feathers, shape ship, watercress, needle shape and so on. There are also more than ten colors like red wine, rosy, purple, red and so on. Some people call the red leaf area of the Guangwu Mountain "golden area", and the red leaf called "golden leaf".
People are always thinking of the autumn colors of the Guangwu Mountains and the poetic red leaves. But for most of the year, it was deserted and desolate, and the whole meaning of its existence seemed to be for the fireworks to blossom, beautiful and unreal. Jia Guo Mountain, the mountain trend is from the east to the west, and the highest peak is 2200 meters. The rock forming Jia Guo Mountains is the dolomite of the light and shadow group, and the water is also the dissolution of this soluble rock. So its peaks rise and fall like canine teeth, with more than a dozen of the bottom, and the top of the isolated peaks. These are at the peak of the development stage, the peak is steep, the slope is gentle. The transformation of the geomorphology is in full view. Standing on the side of the road, we see the jade printing table, the mountains of Jia Guo Mountain, the peaks of the mountains and the verdant trees. And every autumn, the nature shows enchanting, and the Jia Guo Mountain is surrounded by all the colors.
The censor mountain is formed by two different kinds of rocks. The two-lions peak is formed of sandstone. The three sides are steep while the other side is flat as a table, which is a typical monocline mountain. Standing at the view of the observation deck, the whole mountain is magnificent, like a lion guarding the Hanzhong plain. The other mountains are composed of thin layers of sandstone, mudstone, rock formations and stacks of books. The mountain ridge that it forms is like the blade, and the water traces its origin to form a ring steep cliff. The walkway was erected over these cliffs and even crossed the cliff. On the pedestrian, surrounded by a Great Wall, the foot of the stream is difficult to measure, thrilling, unspeakable.
The south part of Guangwu is where granite lays. The surface drainages go through one of the joints and form valleys, while another set of orthogonal joints become a scope. The water flows over the scarp and falls into a broken jade flying waterfall. And the waterfall has long washed down the bottom of the riverbed, forming a jade deep pool. Distributed in pearl channel 10 August pool is the granite zone beach - organ - pool consisting of combined water scene. it is just like a set of lithe and graceful notes, in the quiet mountains plays the flow movement. Guangwu Mountain, one leaf, one world. I would be drunk in this world of colors.
