POTD: Untrampled

POTD: UntrampledUntrampled Navajo Nation, Arizona 2013

This type of badland terrain is very fragile; walking on it even when it is dry leaves very definite footprints. How long does it take for those footprints to disappear? A week if it’s windy or rainy? A month? A year? Decades? The large tracts of such ground in Arizona gives me at least the illusion that it’s not seen a human footprint in a long, long, time. Given there are not a lot of reasons for someone to want to walk all the gullies and valleys of this barren country, it makes me wonder if there are some areas that have never seen a human footprint at all.]]>
