The Old Man and Profile Lake Professional Review and Guide
"What stands 1,200 feet high and has a head 48 feet long? None other than New Hampshire’s one-of-a-kind symbol, The Old Man of the Mountain, in remarkable Franconia Notch. Suspended near the top of Cannon Mountain’s sheer eastern cliffs, the angular nose and jutting jaw of this handsome New Englander’s great stone face can be recognized only from a northeastern aspect in line with Profile Lake. Special attractions: The Old Man, Profile Lake, Eagle Cliff, and beautiful Franconia Notch."
