Life in Shaniko

Ghost towns are possibly some of the most interesting places to find oneself, alone with the past, pondering what was and why things slipped away and what uncertain future awaits them. Kind of reminds one of how life can be viewed. Maybe I think that because I live in Shaniko   -DH

Shaniko Days was established in 1985 to celebrate the new water system. The town has since continued the celebration of that system and the historic spring water that runs through it.

 

 

Camping is always free along the streets of Shaniko, or just come for the day … but come and visit Shaniko Days where you can relax, retreat, and remember.

 

 

There is lodging in the area and a leisurely drive across the high desert will give you a taste of the days when freight wagons traversed and sheep littered the landscape.
