"Davis Path View Toward Lion Head," watercolor and ink on paper
"Davis Path view toward Lion Head," was painted from the same spot as the watercolor "Davis Path, Mount Washington, New Hampshire." It depicts the view across the Ravine to a rock promontory that resembles the head of a lion from some angles. But I found out recently that it went by a different name far back in time.
"A Gazetteer of the State of New-Hampshire," by John Farmer and Jacob B. Moore, published in 1823, calls this crag 'St. Anthony's Nose'! Was Saint Anthony famous for his sniffer? Does this cliff resemble it in some way? I have no idea, but what interesting layers of local names there are heaped on all the peaks and passes of the White Mountains!
