Shoe Fence (and Shoe Gas Island) in the middle of nowhere....

You can find the fence at mile marker 108. Some shoes on the fence had dates from (assumed) visits to the shoe fence. There is a dilapidated building to the west with more shoes. My kids had fun throwing a pair up there.

Good photo op. Stopped on Christmas Eve -- the road wasn't too busy. A few others stopped to take photos too.

The shoe fence has grown since I drove by it three years ago.

The shoe fence is operational!

The shoe fence has accumulated castoff footwear for many years, probably because there are no trees in the desert to make a Shoe Tree. Wonder if there's such a thing as a Shoe Tumbleweed?
