So, the circus came to town today....well, sort of...!

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus stopped in town today...but not for a performance...

...just a pachyderm pitstop!


Eleven of them! It was quite a sight!
They simply hung out for awhile, an hour or so, while their cars were being spruced up...ate a little, covered themselves in dirt and weeds to cool off, one of them even took a little nap!

Then, they were escorted back to their train car...trunks holding tails!

Here, they lined up, got a little drink from a hose...and then...

...one by one, they boarded...into what seemed an impossibly small doorway for such large animals!

Until the final one loaded up...and they were on their way...to Salt Lake City, to perform at the Energy Solutions Arena, Thursday through Sunday!
