Writing Prompt Photo: The Shoe Tree
West of the Salt Lake Valley, out past Tooele (if you're not from Utah, you probably can't pronounce that correctly), we have the West Desert. On the highway to the abandoned town of Iosepa (colonized by Hawaiians in the 1800s -- because somehow that made sense to someone at the time, putting folks used to tropical weather in a desert and asking them to farm productively), there is a shoe tree. And this, folks, is a picture of the shoe tree is a snow storm.
Yup, a tree hung with shoes in the middle of the desert in the snow. Looks like a good writing prompt to me. :)
