The Elephant

Just as the name for Mitre Peak was inspired by its similarity to a bishop's miter, 1,517-meter-high (4,977-foot-high) Elephant Mountain (or simply the Elephant) looks somewhat like the animal it is named for, at least if you are willing to use your imagination. The elephant's "trunk" stretches down toward neighboring Lion Peak (Mount Kimberley), and between the two is the 146-meter-high (479-foot-high) Stirling Falls, the second-tallest waterfall in the fjord and one of only two that flow constantly (there are hundreds of smaller falls that emerge only after rainstorms).
