Drowsy Elk with an Itch

We were driving through a residential area in the mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado. We came upon a bull elk who had decided to take his afternoon rest in a patch of sunlight right beside the road. Not wanting to startle the drowsy animal, we eased off to the side of the road and stopped. As quietly as possible, I stepped outside the car to take a few photos.

Elk scratching his back with his antlers Judging from the expression of pure bliss on his face, he must have found just the right spot. If he could have spoken, I think he would have said, "Ahhhh." Elk says, "Ahhh - that's the spot!" Itchy spot relieved, he resumed his nap. We watched the big elk for a few more minutes, then slowly drove past him and went on our way. He never stirred.
