After snow removal duties in the morning, Carol and I spent the afternoon wandering along the east side of the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River at Lincoln Woods. We traced the route of the northern section of the abandoned Pine Island Trail and observed many signs of storm destruction along the river.

What used to be Pine Island Brook, a medium-sized stream, is now a river unto itself. The 2017 Halloween storm diverted a major portion of the East Branch's flow into this stream, rendering the two crossings along the Pine Island Trail essentially impassable.
