Long Description:
It's not as though the cross is hard to find, or hard to see. It's that it's difficult to say in which town it is located - Okanogan, Omak, or possibly neither. The cross stands atop the eastern edge of a high bluff to the west of Elm Street (AKA Highway 215) in a more or less empty and unused space between the two towns. The bluff is locally known as ShellRock Point and/or Panorama Point.

The cross itself stands 30 feet, possibly 40 feet in height. Supported by guy wires, it appears to be made of channel steel. Beside it is a slightly taller wooden pole mounting what appears to be at least one light with which to illuminate the cross during darkness.

Coordinates given are at a small pullout about 1,100 feet south of the cross from which the photos were taken. For those who wish a closer view there is a dirt road leading up to the cross from Panorama Point Road, to the north.

As for who placed the cross here, we have no idea, but they certainly chose an appropriate location to showcase it.

Coordinates of the cross itself are: 48.390278 -119.550339
