Shoe Tree

Don't bother. I expected to see a tree with shoes hanging from the branches, like in the movie Sex Drive, but I was wrong. It's also VERY hard to find.

Shoe Tree

At Lake View Cemetery, known nationally for its horticultural and historical interest, there is a great shoe tree back near the "dump area." Mostly teen and younger shoes are on the tree. I asked about it in the office and only one person had a vague idea what I was talking about. However, it is a popular place to run, walk, exercise dogs, tc. and many people familiar with the cemetery know of it.
