Description

The historic townsite of Paria sits near the Paria River in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument just west of Page, AZ. It is surrounded by a desolate, yet beautifully painted desert. There is not much left of the town except for a cemetary and this one juniper tree that provides the only shade for weary travelers and tourists in a very hot and dusty desert environment.
