Franklin County Highpoint Trip Report
Dates: September 24-25, 2007
This time I didn't have any maps or Mike Schwartz’s report. I had the real Mike
Schwartz (in the flesh) as my guide. If I remember, Mike didn't have any
reports or topo's either and we got off on the wrong trail, some horse trail and
we finally got to the trail leading up the mountain. We were so bushed that by
the time we were about 1/3 way up we were running so late and completely fatigued,
we both agreed to abort.
Next day we got an earlier start, morning twilight and back out to the trail
head around 7:30 PM. Mission accomplished. I must say that Seward is one of
the toughest mountains in the northeast and I never want to see again.
