Memorial Day, the Shoe tree and bottles in the ground.

A special thanks to all of our men and women that proudly serve to protect us.  Let your Memorial Day celebrations honor them.

Today is our last day in Delta, Utah.   The park was almost full over the weekend but has started to thin out as the “weekend warriors” have started to head home.  After lunch we decided to go riding around.  John was reading "Travels with Emma" blog the other day and Judy had mentioned a website that he found interesting (Roadside America) and he bookmarked it.  He looked up the area we were in and found out about a shoe tree in Hinckley, the next town over, so we went to check it out.  Apparently one day someone threw their old shoes up into the tree and started a tradition.  Strange but interesting.  I thought it was picture worthy.
The shoe tree in Hinckley, Utah.
A closer view.

Another unusual thing we have noticed about Delta, Utah and the surrounding areas, are empty beer bottles stuck upside down into the ground along the shoulder of the road.   I haven’t found out what the significance of this is but I would sure like to know. 
Here are two side by side  and a few yards away……..
this one all by itself.
We have seen this on most of the roadways in Delta.  They are always upside down on the  shoulder of the road.  Most are in a pile of dirt.  It makes me go, huh?
Tomorrow we will travel on to Provo, UT to meet up with our friends Mike and Leslie.
Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.

  1. Isn't it soooo interesting what you find in different parts of this country of ours? That Roadside America will be a favorite of mine too...
