The Great Stone Face (Old Man in the Mountain)

The Old Man in the Mountain, also known as the Great Stone Face, was a rock formation that looked like the profile of an old man. It was located on Cannon Mountain in the White Mountains. Although the rock formation collapsed in 2003, it is still the official New Hampshire state emblem.
