This was a tree my mom and I found on the side of the road on our way to Bend Oregon for our trip back from Michigan. We passed it and had to turn around and go back because it was so cool looking. I have seen telephone wires coated with shoes, but never a tree so covered in them. The shoes were like leaves there were so many. I would have hung up my own shoes but all I had were my new shoes and sandals. Very cool.

    It was truly amazing, and funny because it really was out in the middle of nowhere. No towns for miles, makes me wonder who started it and why people kept adding more.

    It reminds me of the tree I saw in White Tooth New Mexico. It had hundreds of tooth brushes stuck into it! I saw a tiny note placed inside the teeth of one of the brushes!! I gently pulled it out and read —brought to you by the American Dental Association!! What the hell??
