Lock up your Love and Throw Away the Key
It's the most simple idea of showing your neverending love that should be a song. You carve or write your initials or love note on a lock, close it and throw away the key. This is your unity of love that can never be broken or given to anyone else. That's true love.
Some families grow their love locks when newborns are added to the family tree. You go back and place another little lock with the initials of the sweet little love just added to the family. It doesn't get sweeter than that.
This small fence is located in Twin Falls with a beautiful view of the Snake River Canyon. You might run by this little fence on Canyon Rim Trail. This might just be worth a drive to Twin Falls for some shopping, lunch at Elevation 486, and then a walk to lock your love away.
