If Arizona travelers were not already acquainted with some of the world's most recognized striking rock formations, these two lone Elephant Feet would be a big surprise. This roadside oddity stands near the town of Tonalea in Coconino County just outside Tuba City on Route 160.
The two pillars that look like great big elephant feet are the remains of eroded, Middle Jurassic Entrada Sandstone. They are just one of hundreds of unusual and distinct rock art features located within the Navajo Nation. They look so much like elephant feet that you don't even have to squint your eyes or tilt your head to get the picture. The fact that the pillars are grayish white and brownish red instead of gray does not affect the illusion. Nor does the fact that they're about 20 feet tall make any difference. Who knows how big them desert-stompers were billions of years ago?
