remember bobby sock?
i do :)
i wore them all the time, white ones-sometimes with a little ruffle around the tops but always with my shiny [ Vaseline shiny ] black patent leather shoes !
I can still see me on the corner of Saint Paul of the Cross church waiting for all of us [ that would be 10 children, Mom and Dad ] to get done with all the Sunday morning greetings, pile into the station wagon  and head to Thompson store to get the fixing for a famous Dad sunday breakfast extravaganza.
we were all dressed to the nines, boys in their slacks and dress shirts with the clip on ties and the girls in their skirts, peter pan collar blouses and bobby socks.
i have a smile on my face picturing all this again in my mind.
my mom wore the same high heels my entire childhood.
amazing !
well these trees are called bobby sock trees.
you can find them in yellowstone and i just loved taking pictures the bobby sock trees.
still smiling here.

I have never seen these trees in Yellowstone. They are so interesting. Glad to see photos os your trip. I do remember wearing bobby socks when I was very young in the 60's.
