News about hiking normally doesn’t catch my eye.  I love the outdoors, but trekking around in the woods is generally not my thing.

This story, however, surprised me.

A hiker discovers an abandoned town  just hiding in the middle of Smoky Mountains National Forest.  The discovery is the second forgotten find in the national forest in the last couple of years.

The link also includes photos of other abandoned sites that have been rediscovered within the United States.

This makes me want to go exploring off the beaten path… maybe!
