Empty Mary Tree Shrine

On 700 South and 300 East in Wondersalt City there is a tree that was once decorated with flowers and pictures, and a lovely alter full of candles. Some angry Salt Laker gouged out the image of Mary more than 10 years ago and then another wandering soul called Iceman tried to burn away the stairs.

It’s a weird, wounded place now.

No candles.

No flowers.

No ghostly image of the Madonna.

Just a framed picture of a saint, beard neatly trim, robe edged with glitter.


What can be done about it now I wonder?
