Paria Ghost Town

Last week I went to the Paria ghost town with a couple of friends (you know who you are). We found a building still standing for the most part, at least has four walls and part of a roof.

Paria was settled between 1848 and 1867, when it was flooded out and abandoned. The town was on the shores of the Paria River, but no longer exists because the river widened and washed everything into the Colorado River.

High on the hillside are the remains a couple of buildings, one pictured below only has a couple of partial walls remaining.
