That wasn't much of an "article", more like clickbait for limited attention span folks.
Besides, it didn't include Mogollon, NM.  Everyone knows that's the real "COOL" ghost town, lol.

I just hate seeing anything in the news about the Bend. It brings in the Austin types. No offence to those on here from Austin. I mean the latte drinking, spandex wearing types with the latest and greatest camping gear.

That would be AWFUL
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

How special.
