Description
Photograph of a view of the Martha Washington Rock, Colfax, Washington, ca.1900-1915. The upside-down pear-shaped rock is situated near the edge of a cliff. The texture of the rock is very coarse. The cliff area is rocky. Trees dot the landscape in the background. "The big rock was named Martha Washington Rock because it had the shape of Martha Washington's profile." -- unknown author.
