FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) - Some New Hampshire residents are remembering the state's iconic rock formation the Old Man of the Mountain, which fell from its perch 1,200 feet above Profile Lake in Franconia Notch State Park a decade ago.
About 200 people gathered Friday and held a moment of silence before reading letters at a plaza created in its memory.
The famed rock outcropping fell on May 3, 2003. Since then, a nonprofit group called the Old Man Legacy Fund, has created a plaza dedicated to the Old Man. It hosted Friday's ceremony.
Organizers say the event gave residents a chance to reflect on the profile's continued significance to the state, for North Country tourism and for those who remember and loved the Old Man.
