Our Daily Sykes #201 – Lincoln

When first I saw this rock I was prepared for it by my father. We were driving home to Spokane north of Wenatchee on HIghway 2 before it heads west for the coulees, Moses and Grand, and beyond them the scablands that sprawl like hazzards for havesters and section roads. How many Lincoln Rocks can there be? Certainly not as many as there are Lincoln Bridges or Lincoln Banks. And can the rocks be graded for their verisimilitude? At ten I thought that this must surely be one of the most important natural formations in the American West. But on growing up I have heard little about it and not seen much either. We looked west across the Columbia River at it. Perhaps this is a different Lincoln. Sykes does not say.
