THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE v- L . i. co(lwell THE "OLD WOMAN OF THE NOTCH" IS A NEIGHBOR OF THE "OLD MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN" His stony face (page 92) is not seen in this picture, but hers looks down from Eagle Cliff as if a bit dejected. Profile Lake, under her chin, though small, is one of the best known of all White Mountain lakes, because annually more than a million and a half people look for the Old Man's reflection on its mirrorlike surface. The Old Woman is not so well known as the Old Man, because she is not so readily discernible from the highway through Franconia Notch and has not enjoyed the long publicity accorded her masculine rival.
