The Shaniko Shoe Tree and the Bra Tree next to it were cut down. There was no new brush fire. Somebody cut them down and burnt them on purpose.

There was a very full shoe tree located at milepost 53 on Hwy. 97 just north of Shaniko, Or. Someone recently burned the tree down. We are so very sad. It was a great attraction and very full of all kinds of shoes.
