Old Man of the Mountains Fifteen Years Plus 1 Month

On Saturday, May 3rd, 2003, the “face” of New Hampshire changed forever. The Old Man of the Mountains, located at Franconia Notch State Park, was a natural formation of an old man when seen to the pointing to a certain perspective facing south near Profile Lake.

It was man-preserved for many years up till an early May night, when it came crumbling down into Profile Lake. It made headlines the following morning. Since it was almost a couple hours where I once lived, we went right up there.
