Pink Elephant - Health Report
Las Vegas, Nevada
This pastel pachyderm guards the swimming pool of one of The Strip's last low-price establishments. He stands below the most generic of large motel signs -- "MOTEL" and "ROOMS AVAILABLE."
There are a handful of mass-produced fiberglass pink elephants scattered across the country, but this unique Jumbo is not one of them. It appears to be a custom made elephant, probably not easily moved if/when this property gets eaten up by some future casino monolith.
In a smaller town, this pink elephant would be a celebrated landmark. In Vegas, you'll only notice it if you can tear your eyes away from the monorail and massive theme casinos across the street.
