A big, fall moon rises slowly above this icon…. nearly 1000’ of vertical rock, Elephant Head Peak is a well-known, prominent, natural landmark in the Santa Cruz Valley south of Tucson and Green Valley, AZ. With imagination one can see the shape of an elephant head, ears and trunk descending the east ridge. “At the top, numerous elephant statues are bunched tightly together in a “rock corral.” In India and the Hindu religion, the elephant represents strong symbolism of majesty and strength, new beginnings and remover of obstacles, so fitting for the climb to the top and rewarding, majestic views from the summit.
