If you find yourself in St. Thomas, this is a pretty site to visit. There is a little garden and an nice view from the top of the ridge where Jumbo resides. An obscure and amusing little piece of history.

An imposing monument of Jumbo, the famous elephant that was killed nearby over one hundred years ago. It’s located near a rather busy road, there is also a caboose, but it was locked. A good place to stop, stretch and take a few photos.
