New Hampshire ~ Old Man of the Mountain
The Old Man of the Mountain, also called the Great Stone Face and the Profile, was a series of five granite cliff ledges on Cannon Mountain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, United States, that appeared to be the jagged profile of a human face when viewed from the north. The first recorded mention of the Old Man was in 1805. It collapsed on May 3, 2003.
Franconia Notch is a U-shaped valley that was shaped by glaciers. The Old Man formation was likely formed from freezing and thawing of water in cracks of the granite bedrock sometime after the retreat of glaciers 12,000 years ago.
