    If you missed the old man on the mountain after the rocks fell, this is a really great way to experience the history and feel of what is missed by New Hampshire. Very accessible for all ages or handicap.

    also known as the Great Stone Face or 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 face when viewed from the north. The rock formation was 1,200 feet (370 m) above Profile Lake, and measured 40 feet (12 m) tall and 25 feet (7.6 m) wide. The site is located in the town of Franconia.(ref: WIKIPEDIA)
