Signal Hill 乘載了紐芬蘭的軍事歷史,歷經了許許多多的戰爭。

 

Signal Hill carries the military history of Newfoundland after a lot of wars.

搭2號公車,坐到 Military Road 站牌。

(公車費 一人CA2.5$)

從 Military Road 走到 Signal Hill 需要30分鐘,

而且是爬坡。

 

We took a bus #2 to Military Road stop.

(bus fee: CA2.5$ per person)

It takes about 30 mins from Military Road to Signal Hill on foot.

Go uphill !!!

大約走15分鐘,會經過Geo Center,

對地理、外太空有興趣的人可以進去看看。

或是...走15分鐘後,你覺得冷死或累死了,

可以進去坐在那裡休息一下。

 

You will see Geo Center after walking about 15 mins.

If you are interested in geography or outer space, just go inside and look around.

Or... if you are cold or tired, you can stay there for a while.

There are tables and chairs in the hall.

我們全程都是用走的上去,

先是去Geo Center參觀,

出來之後,再走了15分鐘到Signal Hill,

因為當時風很大,氣溫又低,

所以走到上面已經快冷死了。

 

We covered the whole distance of Signal Hill road.

We looked around Geo Center first and then walked up to the Signal Hill.

The wind was strong with low temperature.

When finally arriving there,  we were almost frozen.

下次不會再嘗試在冬天的季節走半個小時的山坡。

Don't tried to go up the hill during winter unless you are a good hiker.

即使你覺得風景很美,

在這麼冷的天氣,

你絕對不會想要停下來欣賞這些風景。

 

Although the view is beautiful, you don't want to stop walking during this cold weather.

晚上來這裡的話,可以看到整個城鎮的夜景。

 

 It is a good place to see St. John's night scene.

過了Geo Center之後會經過遊客中心,遊客中心裡面有互動展覽和關於該地區軍事和通訊史以及St. John's歷史的電影。

不過我們沒有進去參觀。

 

After passing Geo Center, you will see visitor centre.

The visitor centre features interactive exhibits and a film about the site's military and communications history, and the history of St. John's.

But I didn't visit there.

Lookout Trail 有講解介紹Signal hill。

 

The Lookout Trail features interpretive panels about the site's history.

Signal Hill 是一個可以俯瞰港口的戰地位置

 

It's a strategic place to overlook the harbour.

The North Head Trail is located along the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding coast.

堡壘

Cabot Tower

堡壘裡面是有Guglielmo Marconi(無線電設備的研製和改進的工程師,1909年諾貝爾物理學獎得主)的展覽,還有在塔樓內運營的無線電台。

但我們去的時候,可能是因為冬天的關係,所以沒有開放Cabot Tower。

 

Cabot Tower, located at the top of the hill, features exhibits about Guglielmo Marconi and the wireless station that operated in the tower. 

Cabot Tower didn't open when we got there.

Maybe it doesn't open in winter.

好不容易我們已經到達山頂,

但是大家都覺得太冷了,

所以只看了五分鐘,拍個照,

馬上叫計程車跑回市區去。

 

It was not easy for us to get on the top of the hill.

But we just spent like 5 mins to look around and took some pictures.

And then called a cab immediately for warming our bodies.

沒人想再多停留一秒在那裡,只想著去取暖,

即使風景在美,這麼冷的天氣也沒人想待啊!

 

No matter how majestic the landscape is, no one cares about Signal Hill.

We just want a heater.

但是在夏天的時候,會很漂亮。

冬天來看一定要坐車,

夏天來更好,就可以慢慢走。

 

Better rent a car to there in winter.

Or you can take your time to go up the hill in summer.

The scenery will be beautiful.
