Mitchell, Oregon - Shoe Tree #2

Another shoe tree has sprouted in the John Day fossil beds! Driving east from Mitchell, Oregon, we spotted this fine specimen on the right side of the road. It sports a nice variety of rubber and cowboy boots as well as kids' and ladies shoes. Some of the shoes have spread to the neighboring trees - looks like there is a shoe tree forest in the making here.

The shoe tree is located on US route 26, near mile marker 89, half way between Mitchell and the Sheep Rock unit of the John Day fossil beds (aka picture gorge).
