The Doubleheads in Jackson, NH 05-20-13 via looping Ski / Old and New Paths
My buddy, Alex, and I headed up to Jackson this past Monday to tackle the Doubleheads. I had heard they were steep, but really had not expected them to be as steep as they were. It was a tough hike in my opinion! Below is a link to my full trip report and pictures. Below are also some of my favorite pictures if you don't feel like heading over to the blog.
Hobblebush in full bloom. Someone told me or I read somewhere that the big flowers are merely there to attract bees to the small ones for pollination and that they were pretty much decoys. Very cool.

Fog rolling through the valley very quickly
Moats and Cathedral Ledge
Poor trail conditions of the New Path. I was very disappointed as it was not maintained well at all and was not clearly marked. I fell, hurting myself, while searching for the trail on a few occasions.
