SHOE TREE ????

WE HAVE A SHOE TREE TOO!



I have lurked around Ed and Carol's blogspot every now and again when I see their name posted on the Bayfield Bunch Blog's sidebar. (How do you do that sidebar thingee anyways?) This week they posted about a shoe tree they found in Oregon and wondered if theirs was the only one..... it is not!  We have one here, just outside our gate of Zion River RV Resort in Virgin Utah.  I wanted to share their shoe tree with you and then show you ours!




THE ZION SHOE TREE!

This has become one of the mysteries of the Universe? Who would plant a shoe tree?
Why would one plant a shoe tree? This is a tree that bears no fruit, but often we see travellers stopping to offer another shoe to the shoe tree!

 Sorry Ed and Carol, but I think this shoe tree has a better environment in which to grow! Right next to a thriving ostrich farm on one side, the Virgin River behind it and all of those layers upon layers of amazing rocks all different colors!

The red scarves were added in just the past day or so....  guess they didn't have a spare shoe!


Just wanted to show you our MotherShip docked at Zion River RV Resort! We love the lush green carpet of grass and all the shade trees!

Thank you to Ed and Carol for sharing their shoe tree! Wouldn't it be fun if you had a shoe tree in your neighborhood to share with us? Maybe the shoe tree isn't as rare as we thought!

I had asked Al about getting rid of the two word verification symbol in order to post a comment on my blog because he doesn't have that on his. Al said that it allows way too much spam to interfere with his comments! So please, I think I will keep the 2 word verification and keep out the spammers! If you don't want to respond here, in the comment section, you can always use the email listed above! Thanks for understanding!  Coming to you from The MotherShip, Geri, Chuck and the HoundHerd!

  1. Loved the Shoe Tree! So maybe the red scarfs are the shoe tree blossoms, after all it is that time of year. Keep looking for the humorous to tickles the funny bone!

  2. Yuk, yuk, yuk. It's nice to see folks with humor participating in the perpetuation of a rare species of vegetation and litter removal. Leave the verification, don't bother me - without it you do get a mess of spammers.

  7. Murray State University has a shoe tree in the quad...when couples get engaged, they put one of his and one of hers on the tree.
