Our Daily Sykes #257 – Chelan Gorge Bridge & Chelan Butte Above it.

Our Daily Sykes #115 includes a view of the Chelan River gorge and bridge photographed from very near where Horace Sykes stood to record this view across the bridge and up a crease in Chelan Butte nearly to its 3000 foot-plus summit. That black-and-white photoraph was taken by Hugh Paradise, a traveling photographer and feature-writer who appeared often in Sunset Magazine. Besides the color Horace Sykes' view is distinguished by a Sykesian element: the rock at the foreground-left. To me is resembles the head of a surveying cobra. This like his foreground flowers and bushes is so very typical of Sykes.
