The Jim Longo Memorial Walk to Franklin Clove in the High Mountain Park Preserve this morning was a real trip -- featuring amazing rocks, genial participants, a rock shelter or two, a Phoebe nest or two, a Pileated feather and a waterless Buttermilk Falls.
Joining us in remembering Jim were his wife Rosalie and Lauren, one of his daughters. It was a perfect fall morning.
That's one of the ancient rock shelters behind us. After lengthy deliberations, we decided not to spend the night.
Jim Longo's Franklin Clove video, filmed by Lauren Longo, is below. Will post more on that Pileated feather and the Phoebe nest later.
