Old Man Of The Mountain
The Old Man of the Mountain, New Hampshire’s granite profile that tumbled to the ground 10 years ago, is showing up on a limited edition commemorative liquor bottle.
A decade after the Old Man’s demise, the famed stone profile is little more than a historical footnote to the state’s youngest residents.
The Old Man’s absence was first noted the morning of May 3, 2003, by Franconia Notch State Park workers.
Using a helicopter and a grappling hook, the old metal turnbuckle was lifted out of Franconia Notch last Friday.
