Now you don’t see that everyday
Some people are willing to go out on a limb for an unusual mug shot. They head up Illinois 49 to a spot 15 miles northeast of Newton and just south of the burg of Yale (population 100, give or take). Awaiting them is the grandmother of all mug trees. The Fischer’s started their mug tree July 4, 2003. It now holding more than 50 china and plastic mugs, it’s an actual oak tree ascending some 60 feet and measuring 14 feet around. The muggy oak stands for something wholesome and refreshing. A spontaneous gesture of amusing goodwill designed to bring a smile to the faces of passing strangers who are tempted, if only for a moment, to branch out of their daily cares and drink deeply from the cup of whimsy. There is an actual cache located on the tree. The cache is a small container, but has room for little trading items. It also contains its own logbook. When you visit, feel free to bring along a mug of your own and place it on the tree. Also, the tree has a logbook of its own, so feel free to sign it also. Make sure you find the cache and sign that logbook also. Don’t be surprised if The Fischer’s come and visit with you while you are here. They were really excited about geocaching.
