|Lost and Found:
||Took Old Bridle Path up to near the first switchback above Walker Brook, then dropped down and hopped into the Mt. Lincoln drainage. Followed the slide all the way to the throat. Attempted a few routes in the box up high, but all proved to be too risky without technical gear (we found some old climbing equipment in fact at that point), so we worked our way around it and landed between the two bumps on Mt. Lincoln. Slide had some slippery rocks in places, but there wasn't much water flowing, so generally good going until the technical area. Would highly advise bringing a dog up here, or descending. Even the route we took around involved some scrambles not for the faint of heart.|
Franconia Ridge Trail was crowded, but dry, as was Greenleaf and Old Bridle Path.
