Our Daily Sykes #415 – James "Cashup" Davis, Steptoe Hotel

Ten times it seems we have followed Horace Sykes to Steptoe Butte, often to its top, 1000 feet above the circling Palouse wheatland. This is another look from where the winding road reaches the top, and on the right includes, again, remnants of James "Cashup" Davis' hotel, which was built in the late 1880s and razed on the night of March 15, 1911 by a fire that was seen from great distances.
