Elephant Mountain

I am very fond of elephants and when I travel I often like to go elephant hunting. By this, I mean that I will usually find an elephant souvenirs to remind me of each of the places I visit. This time while driving through fire canyon, I happened to realize that an elephant had appeared right in front of my eyes. I stopped the car and got out on top of the picnic table with my tripod to take this shot.
