Elephant Walk

Asian elephants from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey walk under a freeway overpass during their pre-dawn march from the train yard in Vernon to the Staples Center. The Animal Walk is a decades-old tradition for the circus. This year, it happened to fall on the same day as the memorial service for Michael Jackson, also held at the Staples Center.Stefano Paltera / AP
