The Shoe Tree

The modern urban legend has it that this cottonwood tree got it's first pair of shoes when a young married couple camping there got into a disagreement. The husband tossed his wife's shoes into the tree to keep her from walking out on him. They later made up and went on to have a family. They returned to the tree and tossed their children's baby shoes into the branches. Since then a multitude of other people have added their own shoes to the tree. It is located on Highway 50 (The Loniest Road in America) between Fallon and Austin.
