"Last week when passing the Elephant I noticed AZ DPS painting over it. I HAD to stop to ask WHY!!?? He said no problem with the Elephant matter of fact been a huge landmark for over 50 years!! It's the hate graffiti that they keep painting over! Do you know the history of the rock?? Is it true the circus would come to town and only place to travel was that windy road and a elephant was killed?? The rock use to be a full elephant until sometime in the 50-60's half the back end of the rock sheared off and now is just half the elephant?? Viccie" (Submitted Jan. 11, 2011)

"Named after an outline in the rock that looks like a small elephant. Usually painted white, often with an American Flag in his trunk. The area is a constant battle between AZ DPS who spray over the elephant with brown paint and others who paint it white again. Viewable downhill only." (Submitted Jul. 9, 2010)
