Cruising to Black Mtn. in Lake View launch, 1922
"Black Mountain is again taking its position as chief of the mountains, sloping from its clearly cut crest off toward the south. At its north end is The Elephant. See his well-formed head toward the west. His eye, and that rift in the mountainside is the outline of his massive jaw. The wrinkled neck and great rounded back are there,...You must call on your imagination to supply the trunk, for he came before the lake was such a fashionable watering place as at present, and not feeling the need of a change of raiment left his trunk behind." -- Stoddard,Lake George (Illustrated) A Book of Today, 1874
