Happy PFF! The Mysterious Hanging Boulder
Thank you to our hostess Beth at The Best Hearts are Crunchy for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday. Click on the link to see who else is playing!
On the front: " The mysterious hanging boulder mystifies all who pass under. Polar Caves, N.H."
On the back: "Polar Caves, N.H., America's greatest Boulder Caverns. A maze of caves and spectacular rock formations. All caverns colorfully lighted. Different from and [sic] caverns you may have seen. Nothing like it on the American continent."
I love older tourist postcards like this. Whether it's a giant dinosaur or jackalope, a big ball of string, or an odd piece of geology, I find it so funny. Terribly funny, in all senses of the words. Ken Brown has a good time making fun of these postcards.
Polar caves in Rumney NH is still there and still an active tourist location. Its website is, of course, http://www.polarcaves.com/. I browsed the photo album, and yes, the mysterious hanging boulder is still there.
