Geocache Name:

Tree of Soles (GC27XEW)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

1.5/1.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

In my opinion, one of the coolest parts of geocaching is finding places you never would’ve seen before. Whether it’s a scenic lookout, a city park, a landmark—or in this case, something a little stranger. One of the running themes in the Found It logs for Tree of Soles is that it never would have been visited had there not been a geocache there. Think about your neighborhood, is there a secret amazing place that people should know about? It doesn’t have to be elaborate, just a new discovery to add a little delight to their day. If there is, consider hiding a geocache there and share that place with the world.

What geocachers are saying:

“Wow…we’ve been to a ‘mug tree’ and we’ve been to a ‘shoe corner’, but we’ve never been to a ‘shoe tree’ until today!  Life is full of surprises…thanks for bringing us here!” — JustUsTwo

“We added two pairs!!! My mom says her friend has been tossing her shoes into this tree since she was a teenager!! Too funny! They also call this ‘Roller Coaster Road’. I wonder how many pairs are lying in the woods here?? TFTC!” – getn froggy

“Awesome sight. Threw some wayward shoes back up there where they belong. Once again geocaching takes me to another cool place I never knew about.” – Aiwendil67
