IMG_4048 - edit, webWelcome to the Saturday Photo Hunt! This week's theme is FOOTPRINTS. My first thought was a shot of actual footprints, in the sand or of tracked-in mud on the kitchen floor. But I didn't have any photos like that. Then I remembered this one, and decided to interpret the theme in a looser kind of way.

I took this photo a few years ago, when a group of us from the National Federation of Press Women were touring through Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. In Yellowstone National Park, we stayed at the historic Old Faithful Inn, overlooking the famous geyser. We arrived late in the afternoon and jockeyed for position among the crowd of other tourists to get a view of the eruption. By the next eruption, the last daytrippers had gone, and about the only tourists left were those of us who were staying at the inn.

After a long day of touring, we loved relaxing on the balcony of the inn, resting our tired feet, sipping drinks, and watching the geyser erupt. No pressure, no crowds, and no need to stand up unless we felt like it. My friend Kitty put up her feet, and I loved the quirkiness of her bright yellow shoes. They may not be actual footprints, but these shoes left an impression.

Next week's theme is FLOW. See the Photo Hunt website for the full list of upcoming themes.
