The following is a true story. There was a time – in the not too distant past – when a herd of elephants roamed free for a short while just north of Schroon. Through their massive trunks, they drank freely from the pristine Schroon River, where they also bathed. At night they slept on her banks. It was a week of bliss!

We know the story – but do you? Which of  our dedicated readers can tell us in comments how and why this strange event happened.
