I was out to Shaniko, Oregon in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2014 and 2014.

GETTING THERE: I-84 to The Dalles. SR 197 to Maupin (there's one gas station here).
Bakeoven Road to Shaniko. SR 218 South to Antelope. Back up 218 to Shaniko.
SR 97 to Biggs Junction.

It was a gorgeous Fall day. Chilly starting out but got toasty warm by the time
we got to Boyd, Oregon. Not many more warm, clear dry bluebird days left in 2014.

First stop was at the Ghost Town of Boyd, Oregon where we did a scouting mission
last year. Here's more pictures of today's Boyd, Oregon segment.

There is no sign but the cemetery is easy to find. Just up on a hill right off
SR 197 about half way between Boyd and Dufur.

Here's some pictures of the Boyd, Oregon cemetery

The Pitman family lost a dozen-odd children at a young age in the 1880's.
Life must have been hard out here back then....

Here's even more pictures of our visit to the Boyd, Oregon Star #23 Rebekah Lodge Community Cemetery in 2014.
