On Highway 50 near Middlegate, Nevada, a lone cottonwood stood, clotted with hundreds of shoes. The story goes the first pair was thrown during a wedding night argument by a young couple; later, their children's shoes were added to the bough. Whatever its origins, the tree seemed to suck up all the discarded footwear in the county. Sadly, the tree was cut down by vandals on New Year's Eve, 2010-2011.
