More specifically, the Elephant's Feet are on the right coming up on Mile 347 going westbound. There's a parking area where you can pull off the road and take photos, and usually some Native American jewelry shops.

Elephant's Feet

This was an unexpected surprise. Located just a few feet off the highway. Huge pair of rock formations that resemble an elephant's legs. Truly in an area that is in the middle of nowhere. You can't miss this roadside oddity if you are driving by.
