Selfie at Elkmont

I took this self-portrait in an abandoned cabin at the Elkmont Campgrounds in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park near Townsend, TN.  This is one cabin in a ghost town that was created when the facilities were "officially" abandoned in 1990, but the state of disrepair shows neglect going back much further.  The national park wants to level the town but, some of the buildings have been deemed to have historical value so the fate of the town will likely be disputed for some time.
