Abandoned shoe at Bob Woodruff Park

My ongoing Abandoned Shoe series continues!

Hiking through the mosquito infested trail at Bob Woodruff Park is always an adventure.  Sure, I remembered to bring the mosquito spray – but I chose not to spray myself. It’s not summer yet – surely the mosquitoes aren’t out.  I was wrong.  Painfully, itching, wrong.

On the bright side, I managed to distract myself by going down steps that led to Rowlett Creek.  The creek wasn’t flooded (as it was last year) so it was a great time to scavenge for interesting objects to photograph.

Beer cans and broken glass weren’t very interesting to photograph.

But I did find an abandoned shoe.  As far as abandoned shoes go – this is the abandoned shoe of my dreams.  It has great color and in its former glory, it was probably a good looking shoe.  It reminds me of a saddle shoe without the black band.
