How sad is this?  Joshua Tree is a true desert gem.

 

Now the park is going to be closed.  Way to go taggers!

    In my travels, I've come to discover that the entire world has become a canvas for graffiti.  Very sad.

      Truly is, just watch a freight train--it's a veritable art gallery of bad taste painting.

    Somehow or other there is a deeper problem here. I know when I was a youngster (and we all know it's not grown-ups doing the graffiti) I would NEVER have thought about or even considered doing something like that. First, my parents taught me right from wrong and second, if I forgot the 'right' part of the equation and ventured into the 'wrong'...they would have tanned my hide without the sunlight being present.

     

    Somewhere, we've lost our way.

      Like gangs, this is a sign of being 'someone' or standing out from the crowd.  Home Depot locks the aerosol paints but the graffo types still get as much as they want.

        I'm with tef on this.  why on earth has this become an acceptable behavior?  It is defamation of property that is not yours in the very least, and at it's worst it is destruction of national treasures.  I'm afraid that we have become so pc that we allow this behavior as a way of self-expression.  sickening......

          You know Shoeman1000, there have been many graffiti eradication and sting operations but none seem to make a dent. I guess the need to be noticed outweighs the need to respect property!

    Who travels to National Parks with spray paint in their backpack?  Hooligans know no limits!

      They should check backpacks that is for sure,
