Mysterious "shoe forest" in the lens

• The mysterious "shoe forest" in the lens

Mysterious

Photos from Canada discovered a strange forest where the trees hanging hundreds of pairs of shoes. Then with his words:

"My name is Patty Maher, and I am a photographer from Ontario, Canada. Recently, I was driving along a country road in the vicinity of Orangeville, and suddenly saw that in one place the trees hangs a lot of diverse shoes. I stopped to take a closer look into this place and take photos. Shoes out there everywhere, nailed to trees, hanging lace, or just standing on the ground near the tree.

Mysterious

I thought it might be some kind of a memorial in memory of someone who died in a car accident - but it was not, and no one knows who and what brought here all these shoes.

Mysterious

The earliest mention of this place dates back to the spring of 1972. But the police have no information on the incident that occurred at this time and in this place, so it is unlikely any memorial - although it seems that at some point someone created a memorial is one of the trees. More here you can find a few plastic skeletons that are in or boots, or just hanging around - but it is impossible to know whether they have any sense, or someone brought them here for a reason. There are many theories about what it means these shoes in the forest. Some believe that this is some kind of artistic composition, the other - it echoes the movement for freedom of movement, which was popular in the 70s. Yet it can be a place of memory, or drawing of local teenagers.

Mysterious

I felt a strange sense of awe while walking in the woods and took pictures. I tried to imagine the previous owners of the shoes: what kind of life they lived, whether they were alive today, what reasons have forced them to come to this place and leave here your shoes, and why some couples are nailed to trees, some hanging and some - just gently stand on the ground.

I write all this in case if anyone who reads this knows the background of this place, or has its own ideas about why it all appeared. Have you ever encountered something similar?
