Comments: Only posting this to add to Danielle's earlier post. I left my snowshoes on after descending the Brutus Bushwhack because I planned to stay on Lincoln Woods Trail to Franconia Brook Trail. Lincoln Brook and Franconia Brook were both ice bridged and I easily crossed (in snowshoes) by stepping on the thicker sections. Lincoln Brook Trail from the brook to Franconia Brook Trail had not been hiked since two or three storms ago and there was about 6" of snow under an inch of crust. I could occasionally make out some faint snowshoe prints, but the trail was easy to follow. I basically was "postholing" the whole way, but there's a set of snowshoe tracks now. I don't know how much snow has fallen since yesterday afternoon. Franconia Brook had one set of tracks (probably from before Friday's storm) which made the going a bit easier.
