Shoe Fence

If you drive west from Parker, Arizona on California's Hwy. 62, near what once was Rice, California, you will come upon a fence covered with shoes and other mementos put there by local highschool students to commemorate their graduation. (FYI, there was a Shoe Tree before there was a Shoe Fence, which I found to be much more visually interesting, but alas, it burned down many years ago. Fear not, though, as I photographed it way back in 1998, so there exists at least one historical photograph of it for posterity.)
