Elephant Adventure, Thailand

On our way to Pattaya, Thailand, we stopped by for an Elephant Adventure where we were given the opportunity to ride elephants through the forest and through rivers like this one. This photo is of the man that helped guide our elephant through the charted trail. He even offered to get off the elephant a couple times to take pictures of us. In Thailand, elephants are known as the national animal because of their importance in the history and customs of Thailand. They were important because they were used as transportation both in peace and battles, and were revered by monarchs. Lots of fun!
