Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada: Old Man in The Mountain

A natural, craggy rock formation that some think resembles a fisherman. Only surviving mountainous Old Man since the one in New Hampshire fell down.

Trans-Canada Hwy., Corner Brook, NF, Canada
Drive North on the Trans-Canada towards Steady Brook, passing the city of Cornerbrook and the old man is at a height above the highway across the river and just east of the city. A Rest Area off the Trans Canada is the optimal viewing perpective.

Old Man in The Mountain

The Old Man in The Mountain is a natural formation in the rock.

Old Man in the Mountain

I wonder how many residents of Cornerbrook, Newfoundland said "there but for the grace of god..." on learning of the recent passing of New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain, esteemed cousin to their own resident, but more colourful, 'Old Man of the Mountain.' Oozing personality, although cranky-looking, he has a large triangular pointed cap, a huge angular nose that takes up most of his face, a huge pointed chin the size of his cap, a grim slash of a mouth and 2 impressive very beady red eyes that stand out in contrast to the colour of the rest of the face. And it's all natural (I think). He resembles a fisherman looking down on Shellbird Island in the Humber River.
