Miss the Old Man of the Mountain?  He Returns in the Sky.

I was scanning Facebook this weekend and came across a great post on u local New Hampshire by Bobbi-Jo Hodge of the Old Man of the Mountain appearing in a cloud formation.

It looks so much like the rock formation we all miss I had to do a double-take.

 

The Reconstruction

I was never able to see the actual rock formation of the Old Man of the Mountain, but I have been to the Profiler Plaza to see what he used to look like.  It is an amazing job that has been done to recreate the image with seven sculptures that enable you to visualize what he looked like before he fell off the mountain.

The interactive display allows people to see what it must have been like to gaze upon the mountain and see the Old Man.

 

Don’t Laugh, I thought it was Abraham Lincoln

The first time I drove up to New Hampshire and saw the profile on all the state signs, I thought it was the profile of Abraham Lincoln.  Don’t laugh at me.

I didn’t realize until days later when I heard people talking about the Old Man of the Mountain.  My wife and I hiked up to see Plume Gorge and made a stop by Profiler Plaza.

She knew who it was.  She said she even remembered a poem by Daniel Webster about it.

I guess I skipped poetry in high school.  Anyway, if you get a chance, check out the picture of the Old Man in the Mountain cloud formation.

His spirit lives on.

Speaking of things that don't exist anymore

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
