Day 99: 'A walk in the park'

Asian Elephants, Khao Yai National Park, Thailand

It’s one thing seeing elephants standing around bored in a zoo and another entirely hearing them in the wild crashing through the rainforest or seeing them destroy a tree only feet away from where you are standing. I was upgraded from small SUV to a monster truck only thinly disguised as a full size SUV that would make any redneck proud (notwithstanding that it was made in Japan) and yet I doubt that its cab would provide much protection should the sound of the camera shutter tick one of them off. That’s assuming I could even make it back to my vehicle before the elephants got to me…
