Shoe Tree

Add To Itinerary

It's what RoadsideAmerica.com calls the greatest embodiment of the American Spirit you can find on the highway. “A shoe tree starts with one dreamer, tossing his or her footwear-of-old high into the sky, to catch on an out-of-reach branch,” the site reads. “It usually ends there, unseen and neglected by others. But on rare occasions, that first pair of shoes triggers a shoe tossing cascade.”  

Nobody knows the origin of the Snohomish Shoe Tree, but it is fun.

 

Located on South Machias Road, south of Dubuque Road heading toward the city of Snohomish.
