Wowzers. A long journey here, 4 high peaks are incredible, but an amazing day.

Here is a bit of a Summary:
1. Get a solid map - should be figured out by now :)
2. Don't just keep going straight - you'll miss Seymour, or miss the other three. If you see the lean-to's with the bottles and horse area you have gone too far
3. I should have broken these up. This was too much, even if I didn't get lost (to my own fault), it still would have been more enjoyable to break into two trips. Unless you are a glutton for punishment or an extraordinarily amazing hiker.
4. If you take the Calkins Brook Herd Path out - TAKE A RIGHT! You'll appreciate me saying this.
5. The Seaward Range is similar to Allen, that is the best comparison I have.
6. People are freaking amazing. ESPECIALLY WHILE HIKING.
7. I think this will be last hike alone.
8. Still a fantastically amazing day, I learned so much.
9. In actuality - Up & Up is the only way to describe the Seward Range. And I may have sung this 2-3...8 or 9 times.
