    Default Need pictures of cave vandalism

    I need some pictures of cave graffiti. I have some of Cow, but JB, Troy, and Orange Grove would be good.

    There's some in the ballroom at Eagle's Nest as well, if someone's out that way soon.

    I guess this is not what you are looking for, or?

    If you need more google lascaux France or chauvet.

    Sounds stupid but this used to be considered cave graffiti/ vandalism now several thousand years later it's considered art and we are glad to have them. I've seen some in southern France, don't know which cave we went but there were quite impressive. Not saying that the modern cave vandalism is, just thought this might be from interest since it sounded you are preparing a talk about this and it might be of interest where cave graffiti originated from a long time ago.

    Everyone else don't take this as invitation to do graffiti to become famous 20,000 years later.

    Forrest, just let me know what you want it to say, and I will take care of it this weekend.

    I was at devil's den with open water students recently and found initials, hearts, xx loves yy, etc. on one big flat rock....they even left the writing rocks in a neat row for others to use! there was a phone number to call for sex with someone's ex-girlfriend. but all the graffiti was on that one large flat rock. Like I've been saying for years now a few signs at the entrance to the water (on land) would go a long way to curtailing the graffiti. I didn't take pictures. Then again it's not cave graffiti (although the iron bars blocking the cave entrances were knocked down and it was pretty easy to get into a cave dive so those that want to violate the rules and check out the cave possibility at devil's den...now is the time. Owner was concerned (I mentioned it to her) and wants to get someone out there to fix the bars back.
