One of the good things about living up in the mountains is the incredible wildlife.
This big boy was munching happily away by the side of the road and I stopped and snapped a picture.
I don’t know much about elk or their antlers but he’s got a pretty good rack on his head. I’m sure poachers would be happy to claim this prize but he disappeared back into the safety of the trees.
Big, big, dude. May he live a long life.
