A two-day outing, originally destined to culiminate in beautiful Haystack Mountain, instead saw us only do a loop of less-than-glamorous Blake Peak.

We had chosen a perfectly-clear weekend to do a quiet and remote 'lollypop' loop over Haystack Mountain, starting from Elk Lake. However, when Ewart turned around due to a bit of extreme lethargy, we later ultimately decided to cut our plans short, and returned to see if he was ok. What followed the next day was a futile effort to locate him, as miscommunication and assumptions resulted in us becoming very familiar with most of the Elk Lake-Placid trail.
