Stopped last week. The shoe fence is still growing and there is now a second fence just a half-mile down the highway!

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.

[Rex Rosenberg, 02/19/2014]

A thriving shoe fence should grow a few "feet" every year, har-de-har.
