Cherokee, Alabama: Shoe Tree

Hundreds of pairs of shoes hang from a single tree, one of countless thousands of trees in an otherwise rural and undeveloped stretch of highway. Easy to see in the winter.

Roadside Shoe Tree

My wife and I were returning home from photographing the bald eagles nesting at Shiloh Battlefield in Savannah, Tennessee, when we passed a tree full of shoes on the west-bound side of US Hwy 72. I'd put the location somewhere near "smack-dab in the middle" of Luka, Mississippi and Tuscumbia, Alabama.

This particular tree has been sporting shoes since around 2008.
