A View of Short Mountain

Perhaps you've seen this mountain with an "eye" while driving down I-81 between New Market and Mount Jackson. It's actually a rock feature on Short Mountain, which is part of the Massanutten Range.

The following information is from Wikipedia:
Short Mountain lies along the northwestern margin of Massanutten Mountain in Shenandoah County, Virginia. It is seven miles in length, from Mount Jackson on the south end to Edinburg on the north, so it was also once known as "Seven-Mile Mountain".
