The Asian Elephant

Elephant Nature Park is a sanctuary for rescued Asian Elephants in Northern Thailand. The park is situated in a valley and consists of 250 acres of land for the animals to roam freely, bordered by a river and surrounded by mountains and rain-forest. They provide rehabilitation to the injured and mistreated Elephants and are currently host to 67, but that number continues to grow. I had the pleasure of spending a day in the park, learning, taking pictures, interacting with the elephants, feeding them, and bathing them in the river.

They clearly were happiest when it started to pour
