Wanderin' Wawayanda

Preserving more than 35,000 acres of prime New Jersey highland wilderness, Wawayanda State Park brushes up against the state's border with New York. The park's name come from a transliteration of the Lenape Indigenous people's word for the area, said to mean 'winding water' or 'water on the mountain.' A lake and a mountain within the park are also called Wawayanda—perhaps because it's so fun to say?

In addition to the various rivers and creeks here, the park is home to 11 miles of trails, many of them covered with wooden planks. The trail in this photo is an out-and-back hike that takes visitors up to a lookout point on Wawayanda Mountain, where stunning views inspired the trail's name: Stairway to Heaven. (And now you have the Led Zeppelin song stuck in your head. You're welcome?)

漫步瓦瓦扬达

Wawayanda州立公园保护着超过35000英亩的新泽西高地荒野,与纽约州接壤。公园的名字来源于Lenape土著人对该地区的音译,据说意思是“蜿蜒的水”或“上的水”。公园内的一个和一座山也被称为Wawayanda,也许是因为说起来很有趣吧?

除了这里的各种河流小溪外,公园还有11英里长的小径,其中许多都覆盖着木板。这张照片中的小道是一次来回的徒步旅行,游客可以到达瓦瓦扬达山上的了望点,那里的美景激发了小道的名字:通往天堂的阶梯(现在,你的脑海中萦绕着齐柏林飞艇乐队的歌曲。不客气?)
