Rangers photographed a number of heavily defaced markers and rocks this week.

The HFNHP said:

“Graffiti is illegal. Defacing any part of the national park degrades the experience for others. Repair of vandalized sites is costly and time consuming and often cannot restore the site to its former condition, in some cases permanently defacing unique historic sites/natural features.”
