This 1956 photo shows the (then) new Idaho Hwy 55 bridge over Snake River. The lava rock “lizard” appears to be guarding the approach to the town of Marsing. The eastern slope of Lizard Butte has been the site of Easter sunrise services for many years. The spit of land in the foreground of the photo has since been made into a city park.
