Old Man in the Mountain
|Photo by Robert O'Connell|
Whenever some folks stare at nature's handiwork too long, invariably shapes begin to take on a likeness of something familiar in their lives. It's easy to see why New Hampshire's Old Man in the Mountain had sparked a great interest since its discovery in the early 1800s. The stone profile, made up of five granite ledges, became the state's emblem in 1945. It has also appeared on the state's license plates and quarter, as well as postage stamps.
