Can someone help me translate this wall scroll written in traditional Chinese characters? (photo inside)

I've have the explanation/translation before, but it still didn't make much sense in it's entirety. It's supposed to be from an ancient Chinese poet who after visiting various places throughout China now has this collection on places on the his wall in his room to remember all the places he saw. I believe a few of the phrases are famous landmarks and natural areas throughout China, such as the Wuyi Mountains, etc. Ideally, I'd like to have a translation for the entire poem so I can pair it as a caption with the piece on a wall. Otherwise, I have a feeling it won't mean much to people who see the scroll on the wall. Here is the scroll
Thanks in advance!
