The Shoe Tree...

Last Saturday when I went to help my sister out with her Brownies & Sparks group, I stopped at the Shoe Tree in Paris to take a couple photos on the way home.  I guess it is (or used to be?) a GeoCache. Either way, it's pretty cool to see a tree just filled with old shoes, haha.  It's funny to imagine people just getting in the car to go put some of their old, worn out shoes onto a tree out in the middle of no where.  (This is a pretty empty road that it's on.)  Have you ever come across a shoe tree?  Apparently there are quite a few all over the world!  This is the first & only one I've ever seen.  Pretty cool.

  4. My grandma made a shoe tree over the years in the forest behind their old house. They moved so I'm not sure if it's still there or not.

  8. There was a shoe tree at my college! (The University of Minnesota) It was always my goal to get a pair of shoes on it. I completely forgot about it until reading this post. They are such odd, fantastic things.
