Franklin Clove Video by Jim Longo

For folks who love local history in general and High Mountain in particular, the sudden passing of Franklin Lakes and Wyckoff historian Jim Longo last month came as a shock and great loss.

Jim used to lead an annual walk to the Franklin Clove, and Jim graciously took me to the Franklin Clove a couple of times when I was researching High Mountain.

On one of our walks, Jim gave me a copy of the video he and his daughter Lauren did about Franklin Clove several years ago. With the Longo family's permission, I have posted it on YouTube so more people can learn about the Clove -- and see and hear Jim in action. The video is approx. 22 minutes.

A terrific guy in all ways. (A post I wrote about Jim last month is here.)

I hope to lead a walk to the Clove in Jim's memory in the fall.
