This is where the river meets the Pacific Ocean. 這是金崙溪到太平洋的出海口.
From the Jinluen River we drove south to Duoliang When I first moved to Taitung this place wasn't famous, but in recent years it's become a major tourist destination. The picture above was taken in their concession area. 我們從金崙溪往南到 "台灣最美麗的車站-多良". 我剛搬到台東的時候, 多良不是有名的景點, 可是這幾年到那裏觀光的觀光客越來越多. 上面的照片是在那邊的美食區拍的.
This is the view from halfway up the hill. Is it the most beautiful view in Taiwan? Not even close. It's ok if the weather isn't too hot, but be warned that there's very little shade to be found in Duoliang. 這是半山腰的風景. 台灣最美的風景嗎? 好像不是. 如果不是那麼熱的話, 風景還是很不錯, 可是多良只有少數的樹蔭可躲太陽.
The local church has installed these "stations of the cross" markers all the way up the hill. For me these were the most interesting part of the place. 村裡的教會把這些 "苦路" 的指標裝設在上坡的路上. 我覺得這個部分最有趣.
Further south is the village of Da Shi/Loong Shi. It's a very sleepy village, but it does have its own train station. Another road leads from there into the mountains. 多良以南有大溪 (瀧溪) 村. 這個寂靜的鄉村也有火車站, 也有路通往山區.
Behind Da Shi the landscape widens out, and it's much more beautiful. This picture was taken along the road that leads to Tai Ban and Tu Ban villages. 大溪後面的景觀變得很空曠. 這照片是在往台坂和土坂的路上拍的.
We didn't go into Tai Ban because I'd been there not long ago. Instead we drove to Tu Ban, which I hadn't visited before. Most (all?) of the people in Tu Ban are members of the Paiwan Tribe. 我們沒去台坂, 因為我沒多久前去過. 我們去了我沒去過的土坂. 土坂大部分 (全部?) 的居民是排灣族民.
The signs outside of town say there's a hot spring here, but according to two of the villagers we talked to it isn't finished yet. This picture was taken from behind Tu Ban Elementary School. 部落外面有指示牌說這裡有溫泉. 但當地的二個村民說這個溫泉還沒蓋好. 這照片是在土坂國小後面拍的.
This is inside Tu Ban Elementary School. One of the school's functions is introducing local culture to those outside the village. It would be a great place for a field trip - IF it wasn't so far from everything. 這在土板國小裡面. 這所國小的發展特色之一是把部落文化介紹給外地人. 在這裡舉辦戶外教學一定很好玩, 問題是土坂很遠.
This is the lower part of the village. It's super quiet. While we were there I saw an activity center, a Catholic church, a Protestant church, a restaurant that looked like no one could be bothered to open it, and a single small store. Most people here probably drive down the road to Da Shi when they need things. 這是部落中比較低的地方. 這裡很安靜. 我們在那裏的時候, 我看到了活動中心, 天主教堂, 基督教堂, 隨興開的餐廳還有小雜貨店. 住這裡的人大概是去大溪買東西.
On the other side of the village there's a suspension bridge. There's a trail leading along the river from one end of the bridge. 部落另外一邊有座吊橋. 橋的另一邊有步道.
The river below the bridge is very clean and cool. ...and OF COURSE there are signs telling you not to play in the water. But are you going to let the government tell you how to live? Are you? Are you? 橋下面的小溪很乾淨又涼快. 當然也有 "禁止戲水" 的牌子. 真是要讓政府告訴你該怎麼活嗎? 真是要這樣子嗎?
We found this dead thing on the riverbed. A Reeve's munjac? I think so, but I'm not sure. 我們在河床上看到這隻死掉的動物. 是不是山羌? 我不清楚.
Still further south is the village of Jia Jin Lin. Not the best place to see the ocean, but there are a couple convenience stores nearby selling drinks. 再往南有加津林部落. 這裡的海景不特別, 但還好有兩家便利商店賣飲料.
Like a lot of Da Wu Township, Jia Jin Lin is a place most people pass by. And while it does take a bit more effort (and a car) to explore this area, it's beautiful if you venture just a little bit off Highway 9. 加津林跟大武鄉的其他村落一樣, 人們只會經過, 但不會停下來. 探索這個地區不是很方便, 但你只要下台9線, 你就可以找到風景很不錯的地方.
