North & South Doublehead

Ten days after moving into Jackson, we have an Internet connection at the house. Time for a little bit of housekeeping.

Last week, we took advantage of our proximity to North and South Doublehead (it’s only three miles) to take a late afternoon hike up to the twin peaks. North stands at 3,053 feet and South at 2,939 feet. Definitely not the highest peaks in the White Mountains but the trails to get to them are very steep. They are short but leave you gasping for air. And while North doesn’t have much a view, the view from South Doublehead will also leave you gasping for air, but not out of exertion – simply out of the beauty of the views from three different locations. Here are some shots from the hike.
