Photo of the Day: Environmental Walkway, Olsen Park, Bogota NJ

This afternoon, after walking in Foschini Park in Hackensack, I crossed the Lt. Ryan Memorial Bridge to a place I’d never visited in my 60 years in Bergen County: Bogota's Oscar E. Olsen Park. The park’s environmental walkway, seen here in this photo I took, affords a fine vantage point to look west onto the Hackensack River.

Nature watchers can not simply peer beyond the rail for signs of life, but also read the signs on the walkway that explain such matters as the plumage of birds, the food chain of the creatures below, and the river's function as a resting spot for ducks.
