Grave of Jim The Wonder Dog

The easiest way to find it is to enter the cemetery and go towards the office on your left. There's a little place to park. There is a barely noticeable path by a water spigot pump and fuel tank for the cemetery's tractor. Follow that trail to the end. Then you'll see the grave. People have left dog toys and pocket change.
