On my way into the Trapps this morning I saw that someone had tagged up a number of boulders with red spray paint. Anyone else see this atrocity?

A major tagging happened earlier this summer in the Near Trapps, and was erased by a clean-up crew, I think of volunteers, within a day or two.

One wonders whether the same people are responsible for this new defacement. Perhaps it is time for some remote video cameras?

I second that suggestion Rich. Perhaps the Preserve can divert a teensy bit of renovation money towards some enforcement effort.

Extremely doubtful that they'd be noticed, and they can easily be installed out of reach.

Rich, probably not the same people. The summer graffiti was the bubble type letters. The recent graffiti was just letters in a single color - looked something like red marker but according to the ranger I talked to who was cleaning up, it almost seemed like lipstick although he didn't think it was. One of the markings I saw was a heart with initials in it.
