While driving through the bottoms near Ellis Park on this cold, sunny New Year's Day, we spotted something that made us giggle. At the point where Waterworks Road meets Weinbach, there is a Shoe Tree.
I've seen the Mystery Tree on Edisto Island, South Carolina, but had never seen a Shoe Tree. Don't you wonder who threw the first shoes into the tree? Did they come prepared with an old pair of shoes? How did other people know about the tree? Ah, the stuff of legends. If you want an enlarged view of this tree, click on the photo.
