I remember she took us one time to a place where an old homestead used to be and she and my parents dug around and found old bottles and things buried there.
She also would go with us when we would go to see some of the touristy sites. One of my favorites was going to see the Old Man in the Mountain.
Well, what do you expect from a little kid? I listened when my parents and Aunt talked about it and really thought it was going to look exactly like and old man’s face. I remember looking way up there and squinting my eyes so the details seemed to be there just not too clear.
Over the years I have kept fond memories of going there with family and getting to see the grand old man. I also thought it was pretty cool that it was on the state quarter.
I was saddened like so many others when the old man crumbled away in 2003, but his image does live on.
There is an old man legacy fund site (which I found interesting);
and a cool video;
The old man may be gone but he is a long way from being forgotten.
