Thank you, Colette, Claudia, Murry and Wendy. Murry, you made me laugh! Actually, I'm glad these weren't the other kind of steam vents. Some of the vents on Hawaii smell like rotten eggs, but there was no odor here. :-) #868525

Great shot, Patricia, and this could go into the month's category for the autumnal changes in colors, although we don't have an autumn here :-)!! Love that fenceline and the addition of the walker! Excellent effects, too!
