The Great Stone Face was a rather miraculous rock formation on the mountain, most dramatic, one can see why folks such as Daniel Webster and Nathaniel Hawthorne were so impressed. After being there for centuries (at least), it couldn't last forever and fell in May 2003. I had seen it many times over several decades and kept coming back for the wonder and sense of peace. Saw it again in late 2003 and felt like a friend had gone. Now they have installed a plaza and some structures at what was the viewpoint which, while nothing can replace the Old Man, do give a sense of what it looked like. Not a wasted trip: read the postings, find the spot (based on your height), and look up, get a sense of how privileged we were to have had it as long as we did.
