“Large elephant with vision problems”

A huge Pink Elephant with black glasses at a gas stop. The Elephant in DeForest, aka "Pinkie", stands at a Citgo station. In the late 1970s, this was an ARCO station - one of several ARCO stations in the area with pink elephant statues. This is the last one left.

This is NOT the last one left. I actually have a list of over 20 across the country. A lot of them have been bought by other companies to sit in front of their buildings. I am quite obsessed with them.

Fun little stop. Took gun pictures with the family. Added bonus they sell "Pinkie" stickers inside for my scrapbook.

Great photo op during a gas stop. Good for children and cheezy adults who like to torture kids with silly photo ops.

Elephant is there. A two second stop but worth it to see the hipster/Harry Carrey elephant.
