Really missed being out yesterday. Rest is important, though. I hope all of you are having a good spring!

Is that tunnel ridge road?  I've never understood the inclination to graffiti and vandalism and I have noticed a serious uptick of both in urban areas and state parks over the past several years.

Where's the little angry face emoji I have on my phone? That face, a million times. And a few sad ones thrown in for good measure.

I give them a C- for effort and execution. The paint wasn't the right color tones and the whole spraypaint graffiti is so cliché. Gotta love an engaged citizenry though.

If they had carved El Presidente's face into the side of Raven Rock (ala Mt. Rushmore), so it could look out across the RRG I would have been more impressed . . . probably should give people any ideas though!

But yeah, to answer your questions is this a great example of how far we've sunk currently. Bad news is, we look like we're headed even further down.

Backcountry Strider,
This is Nada Tunnel, entering from the west. The unofficial "entrance" to the heart of the gorge.
