There is a stone milage marker, in New Hampshire, at around 1758. As I remember it it's about 5' tall, 10' square and is made from a finished piece of stone. On the side is inscribed what I believe is a milage distance.
I know it's telling the milage from Springer, but why is it at that particular spot? Who put it there? It probably weighs a couple of hundred pounds and cost a few $ to make.
The last time I passed it was in 2003. I presume it is still standing. I have thought about it several times since and asked other hikers about it but never got an answer that satisfid my wondering.
