New Hampshire's 'Old Man' Falls from the Mountain

New Hampshire's famous landmark, the Old Man of the Mountain, collapses in a landslide. The series of granite ledges resembled a human face in profile. The image was used on state road signs and even the back of the New Hampshire quarter. Hear NPR's Lynn Neary and museum volunteer Cathy Nelson.
