A Symbol of Hope and Inspiration on California’s Route 36
Not only does California’s Route 36 boast beautiful riding and the world’s greatest road sign – it does so much more. It’s undulating roadway oozes hope from it’s very blacktop.
What the hell am I talking about?
Well, darlings, I’m so glad you asked.
Near Cottonwood, California where a dumpy, tan port-o-potty once stood – hope has sprung eternal in the form of…
a shoe tree.
Has there ever been a more poignant testament to the idea that you can rise up out of whatever shit you’ve come from to become something great?
No. No, I don’t think so.
From pee to shoe tree. From pooh to shoe. You too can become a butterfly; a phoenix, even! Don’t let anyone tell you any different.
