“The Old Man of the Mountain I chose, because (though he has since fallen) he has been the icon of everything to do with our state for a very long time. It’s one of those strange things that even though it seems silly, somehow meant a lot to you to know he was always there. To quote Daniel Webster, ‘Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoe makers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but up in the Mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that there He makes men.'” – Chris Therrien

“The foliage I chose, because it turns our entire state into a work of art for about a month every year. It happens all over, but nowhere have I seen the boldness and variety of colors that we have in New Hampshire. People come from all around in mid to late September to drive all over the state and just look at leaves, which is pretty amazing (and annoying to the locals).” – Chris Therrien
