Pink Elephant Rock

Saves: 5
Check-ins: 1
An elephantine rock on Highway 79 has been a mascot for a few causes. First, Hemet High baseball team painted "Uncle Wally's Elephant" on its side in 1967 after a popular coach at the school. After that the elephant became a sort of local tradition. Later on the elephant was painted pink to hopefully prevent DUIs and even made the cover of the CHP magazine. Today it is still a part of the community although without a trunk it doesn't resemble an elephant quite so much.
