Shaniko is a nice place to stretch your legs, grab an ice cream, and gander at some old relics of the past. Visit the old jail and gander at some interesting old farm equipment and automobiles.

This in an interesting place but the ghost town we were expecting. There are a few blocks of old buildings and a few stores open in the middle of town. Nothing seems to be coordinated.

This is a bit off the path but well worth the time. You can see the old buildings from a once bustling town of the old West. There is a post office still in service. Fun place to see. Highly recommend a visit.
