East Wenatchee, Washington: Lincoln Rock

Natural rock outcropping's strong resemblance to Lincoln wasn't enough to sway the state from calling itself Washington.

Lincoln Rock

A natural rock formation looks like the profile of Abraham Lincoln. You can see this from Lincoln Rock Park, on the other side of the river, or get much closer by taking Hwy 97A and turning up Swakane Canyon Road.

All things kinda droop with age, for I remember a more easily recognizable view. Perhaps it's the vantage point. I'd try from Highway 97A, but be quick to look, and not the driver.

Lincoln Rock

According to my very old copy of "Washington's Historical Markers" by W. M. Scofield, this natural feature, located on "U. S. 1, North of East Wenatchee" closely resembles the profile of the 16th president. Yet I am shocked to find no mention of it on your website, while you call attention to some dead guy, who no one ever heard of, carried from Missouri in a lead coffin filled with rum! Where are your priorities? P.S. I'm living in Amsterdam, or else I would immediately check this one out for myself.
