Elephant Rock and WATW


Sadly, after the last bout of earthquakes earlier in the month, poor Elephant Rock has lost his trunk and is now a humble arch. :( The good news is that there should be some new and interesting column and shapes in the new year.

Sorry about the damage to elephant rock. I think it still looks like an elephant though.

That is sad to see the elephant lose his trunk.

That's a lot of damage but considering the earthquake, it's not surprising.

Sharon Wagner said...

Wow! What a vista. So sad only part of it remains. I bet you're glad you have that first great shot.

That must have been some earthquake to shatter Elephant Rock like this. Impressive before and after photos. Thank you for hosting this blog.

I've never been there but I've seen photos of it - shame some of it has disappeard but I'm sure it's still quite eye catching.

That is a big chunk taken off. I never saw this before but it still looks impressive.

Heisann, rare cliff, interesting! Have a nice Christmas time ;:OD)

That is a shame. I don't think 'headless elephant rock' has the same ring to it.

So sad, but still very interesting! Happy New Year!
