Ghosts Aplenty

Abandoned cabin interior – Animas Forks, Colorado

Ghost towns have always intrigued me, especially those that people claim to be really haunted – like this one at Animas Forks. Is it actually haunted? I suspect it is for some people that are susceptible to suggestion, but it certainly wasn’t for us during our many visits there. It was very quiet and peaceful, with the murmur and burble of nearby West Fork Animas River providing a low-level white noise in the background. This photo was taken ten years before the buildings were stabilized and restored back in 2014, so the view may not be the same now.

  1. When I was growing up, I often visited a ghost town called Alvira near the Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex in central Pennsylvania. It was a small town that was seized by the government during WWII. They bulldozed all of the houses to build ammunition bunkers, but they left the churches and graveyards standing. The structures deteriorated over the years which resulted in creepy-looking, overgrown foundations with graveyards next to them. If you are ever in that part of the world, it’s worth a visit.


    1. Oh boy, a new “haunt” to explore – haha! Nope, never been to Alvira – but we have been to nearby Centralia, so I’ll have to begin posting pix from that visit now as well.

      Thanks for the tip! Cindy and I love exploring ghost towns, and that would be a nice one to hunt down.
