Photograph of a group of hikers on Beech Hill with Mount Monadnock, located in Cheshire County, New Hampshire, in the background. Monadnock is said to be the second most climbed mountain in the world, after Mt. Fuji. It is 3,165 feet tall and stands alone above the surrounding landscape. The geological term "monadnock" is taken from this mountain and means an isolated, erosin-resistant mountain that rises abruptly from its surroundings.
