We’re expanding our horizons at Appalachia Bare and have made our first attempt at video and filming! Join us on a tour of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s abandoned town of Elkmont. You’ll find the view slightly pixelated, a little jumpy in places, and dizzying in spots. We avoided several areas with caution tape and/or locked doors for safety reasons.
This video starts with a short bit of history, and the filming begins at the 2:47 mark. Our apologies for the “heliumesque” and sliced beginning. Hopefully, with experience we’ll improve our filming capability. We’re so glad to share this next step with you. Enjoy the video and leave a comment.
Here’s a link to the transcription:
