Our Daily Sykes #468 – The CLARKSTON-LEWISTON SNAKE RIVER BRIDGE

In the life of Our Daily Sykes we have seen this bridge, and these hills before. We used the clue before too, and because it brought us to the "truth" we don't need it now. But we can make note of it: the monumental "C" near the top of the ridge showing beneath the bridge. It stands for Clarkston. The lift bridge replaced the 1899 cantilevered span between Clarkston,Washington (on the left) and Lewiston, Idaho (on the right) in 1939. (I may be off a year.) Judging from Horace Sykes' travels the new bridge may be a dozen years old here, or less. (Click to Enlarge)
