This past weekend we camped in Angeles National Forest east of Azusa in Los Angeles. I was walking around taking pictures when I spot graffiti- all over the place! It was announced that popular hiking spots of Joshua Tree are being closed for graffiti as well. Rangers said they’ve found graffiti spray painted on 17 sites, including the famous rock formations and historic Native American sites, at the Southern California park’s Rattlesnake Canyon. They put historic Barker Dam off limits after vandals carved their names into the cement of the Old West landmark. It saddens me to see this graffiti over our beautiful parks and forests! We need to do something to help clean up our parks and stop the graffiti! Here are some pictures I took while camping just weekend. This was all within about a quater-mile radius… so sad!
