Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades. Shoemakers hang a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, even the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but up in Franconia Mountains God Almighty has hung out a Sign to Show that in New England He Makes Men." The Old Man of the Mountains is one of the wonderworks of Nature in the world - it was venerated by the Indians as a manifestation of "The Great Spirit," and is "The Great Stone Face" of Hawthorne's story. It is 1200 ft. above beautiful Profile Lake.
