I know. But it still seems to me that they are simply trying to get another replica of a face for people to come up and look at. I wouldn't mind the idea if it was someplace else, even. But somehow this puts the emphasis on the face instead of on the wonder of nature creating something so magnificent. Maybe it's just me, but it seems so touristy to me.

So much for the "let's not make a fake replacement" idea. While I support making some kind of monument or something to mark it, this is just a disguised attempt at making a fake replacement. I think they would be better off doing something different.

Having just travelled up to Franconia (for hiking and camping), I don't find an issue with the monument. You really won't see much of it unless you pull into the parking area which is already a highly tourist area with cannon Mountain (tram), the beach @ echo lake.......

Given the fact that the old man was held up by glue and cables for the past 50+ years it was a fake for the last half century already why not replace it on the ground.

By the way the basin / cascade trail is highly underrated. A great family hike.
