I left my shoes at the turtle rock crag on Tuesday 2/27, wanted to see if anyone had spotted them! They’re blue lasportivas. Thank you!!

Turtle Rock at Joshua Tree?  also a Turtle Rock at Horse Flats, and others elsewhere.  guess pretty popular name since most rocks do resemble turtles and are fairly immobile

shoes usu aren't kept by finders, nor taken back home.  i usu leave stuff like that at the trailhead in case the person comes back to look for them.  or for Turtle Rock in JTree, on a prominent rock or picnic table close to the lot.  some might drop them off with the ranger on their way out the West Entrance, or with Nomad Ventures, so you might call those and see

I like to leave things were I find them... so when “The looser” returns to the last place they had them they are still there. 

Good luck with lost shoes.

Thanks mate, ya a friend went by and didn’t see them... hopefully someone dropped them off with rangers! We’ll see, appreciate the good vibes though.
