The splendor of nature.
If you're going to deface one of the most breath-taking natural wonders in Texas, shouldn't you come up with something better than "Ca$h" and "Truck"?
You'd think so. But evidently that's the best effort of the two people who this weekend spray painted the side of a boulder on Enchanted Rock, Central Texas' monstrous, ancient granite protrusion.
The Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife posted on the Enchanted Rock Facebook page that the graffiti likely occurred between 3 and 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 20. The post also says the taggers are likely from San Marcos, though little other information is given about them.
Maybe they're a crime fighting duo, and writing "Ca$h" and "Truck" is a kind of primitive bat signal for them. Or maybe "Ca$h" and "Truck" are code, a warning even, that's critical to the rock's long-term well being. Maybe these are actually ancient hieroglyphics, somehow overlooked by thousands of tourists and park staffers.
Maybe. Or maybe these are just a couple of assholes who felt like scribbling on a boulder where lots of people would see it. That's a time-honored tradition
, after all.
If you have any information about the graffiti, call (830) 685-3636 or email the park's superintendent, Doug Cochran, at Doug.Cochran@tpwd.texas.gov.
