|Nice start. Thanks for adding this mountain range.|
A couple suggestions:
1) Add some route information. There are a lot of peaks here, and there needs to be some indication of the kind of hiking and climbing routes.
2) Add these coordinates:
latitude = 45.1475
longitude = -70.28889
Remember, to add the (-) sign to the longitude.
Let me know when updates have been made, and I will upgrade my vote.

|Nice first post! Your photos are really nice, too.|

|Nice first page, but I agree with Hgrapid. You need some route info so people can get to the top. Other than that, nice work and nice page. Some more beautiful scenery from the rugged peaks of New England. I love those mountains. Take care!|

|The page is nice overall. I love your pictures. I think just writing a brief description (a paragraph or two) about some routes to the top of the mountain in the overview section would greatly help. Other than that a great first page.|

|Wow! This is impressive as a first SP offering. It's also nice to see more people from ME. I was born and bred a few miles across the border in northern NH so we speak the same language. |
A few suggestions. Putting up pages for entire mountain ranges is something very common in Europe, but has met with more resistance here in the USA. There are a few Groups (as they're called) here. Check out nartreb's Presidential Range group as a good example.
Since this is an overview of an entire range of mountains, you should probably include more introductory text, especially a little something about each member; perhaps a listing of peaks and elevations. Eventually we can fill in pages for specific peaks and have links to them. Also, never underestimate the ability of people to get lost. Detailed directions, possibly even split up by different trailheads, are a good idea. Finally, it's a nice touch to add a link to a weather site that gives current conditions and forecasts.
Welcome to SP and good luck!
Also, thanks for the Speck photo. It needed a nice distance shot like that.

|I still think the trail descriptions could be more clear and detailed - an actual Route page might be helpful. But assuming the Topozone map is accurate (a rather risky assumption, I've found) and/or your readers take your atlas advice seriously, that's not enough to prevent this from being a 4-star page.|
