The Lone Chief of The Valley - Welch Mountain

There have been numerous articles written since the fall of the Old Man of the Mountain detailing the other stone faces and images in New Hampshire but none have spied the Lone Chief of Welch Mountain in the Waterville Range of the White Mountains.

Standing at the summit and looking south the Lone Chief can easily be spotted by his Roman nose jutting out prominently.

If you look closely, you will see that he is looking over a piece of rock shaped just like Vermont (or NH upside down), so it could be said that he is watching over both NH and Vermont as well which after all would have both been a part of his hunting grounds.
