14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Mondays Personified

I was traveling in Thailand and found a sanctuary for these endangered Thai elephants. This place stuck out to me because they refuse to let tourists ride the elephants as it can cause back problems over time, but instead let people feed and bathe them. Apparently the elephants can ride the people.
