Recently I was in New Hampshire visiting my son at camp. NH is also known as the Granite State which refers to its extensive granite formations and quarries. As we were riding along the highway, I noticed that walls of stone that were blasted through to make room for the roadway. Layer upon layer of stone is visible in these cross sections. You can see how during the ice age glacial flow must have created these beautiful formations. In fact one such formation has been a long time emblem of the State.
The Old Man of the Mountain was a granite formation that resembles the profile of an old man with a craggy face and long chin. It was formed out of 5 layers of granite ledge. Over time and due to cold temperatures, some of the ledge broke off and the profile no longer remains. It was a natural example of how the elements, wear and time can change and radically alter the look of natural stone.
