All About High Mountain by Jim Wright




Find out more about one of the great spots to hike and enjoy nature in

North Jersey's backyard. High Mountain in nearby Passaic County offers

great views to the east as well as 11.5 miles of hiking trails -- with a

few birds along the way.


Jim Wright, birding columnist for The Record and author of a new e-book about Duke Farms' Bald Eagles, will talk about this 1,260-acre patch of mountainous forest in a free talk for the Montclair Bird Club on March 9.


The 40-minute talk will include recent nature shots, aerial photography and archival images. Jim is the author of four photography-driven books about cherished natural areas, from Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania to New Jersey's Meadowlands. He has been photographing the preserve for the past five years.
