For most hikers, a trek in the mountains might lead to a few bug bites, some scenic views, and some cool nature selfies. For Jordan Liles, his hike took him somewhere he never expected.
Jordan was out hiking in 2013, took a few different turns off the beaten path and next thing he knew, his journey led him to the discovery of a ghost town. Deep in the heart of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in Tennessee, Liles came across an entire town, complete with a motel and a saloon, built over 100 years ago and all but forgotten.
What an incredible find! “Abandoned places are sometimes scary but oftentimes beautiful, and this place in Tennessee is a little bit of everything,” Jordan Liles wrote.
I guess it makes you realize just how big America is; big enough for entire towns to be forgotten about!
Many of these buildings are more than 100 years old!
