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.
