Hiking Doublehead Mountain

What perfect weather we had this weekend. I thought I was ready for fall but this past weekend just reminded me how much fun summer weather is! On Saturday we took a little drive up to Jackson, NH to hike the Doublehead Mountains. We’re watching my parent’s adorable little boston terrier this weekend so we didn’t have that much time to go for a hike. The Doubleheads were the perfect option for the day. The hike is about 2.5 hours long but it is plenty challenging and you get AMAZING views. I didn’t think the leaves had changed colors much but once we got to the top it was clear that they had!

We Parked at the end of the “New Path” and walked down the road and up on the ski trail. There is a great view of Maine and some ponds from the top of North Doublehead.

We continued on to South Doublehead to see the views of the Presidential Range and itty bitty Black Mountain Ski Area. Afterwards we hiked down the “new path” which was very very steep and full of loose rocks. In retrospect it would probably be better to walk up the New Path and walk down the Ski Trail. Next time!

Once we were done hiking we decided to stop at Jackson Falls. We didn’t swim because the water was FREEZING but it was nice to wade around in the water and play on the rocks.

Our final stop of the day was to go apple picking. I don’t think I’ve ever been so hot apple picking. It was really weird. We got a bunch of apples and I don’t know what I’m going to do with them yet but I’m really into these Peanut Butter Apple Bites lately so I’m sure a good amount of the apples will be made into those!! 😀

Cape Cod Weekend Fun

We spent the past weekend in Cape Cod and had a blast! If you’ve never been and live in New England (or anywhere really) it is well worth the trip. I think there is so much to do and I always wish I had more time there because there always ends up being something that I wish I got to do. Here are a few highlights from our trip.

On Thursday we spent the majority of the day on our bikes and ended up riding 45 miles sight seeing. We stopped in Wellfleet Harbor for lunch and then continued on back to Truro where we were staying. A dip in the ocean was fabulous after the long ride! The water was also really warm because we were staying on the bay side. The beaches aren’t as nice as they are on the Atlantic side but the water is warmer so I can’t complain too much.

Friday was more biking. We rode to Race Point Beach and on a little path that weaved through the sand dunes. It was so cool! We stopped to walk across a giant (mile long) rock wall that goes to the very tip of the cape. The walk was long, it was hot, and I was so excited to have ice cream and go for a swim afterwards.

Saturday was our last day and it was pouring rain so we lounged around, went into Provincetown,  and then decided to check out Truro Vineyards. For 10 dollars you can do a wine tasting of 5 wines and then take home a souvenir glass! It was really fun and we definitely purchased some bottles to bring home with us.
