Lao Elephant

One of the few remaining elephants in The Land of a Million Elephants, Laos, albeit an elephant sanctuary-eco tourist development; this one is outside of Lauang Prabang.

These extraordinary animals, basically make their living by providing tourist access to themselves and their sanctuary habitat. All in all, much better than hauling old growth forest logs from dawn to dusk and all that goes with that sort of 'work'.
