Last week, I got a volunteer call out to do a project way back in the back country. As I wrote here, some doofus had painted a rock with graffiti. The weather has been too rainy to get in since the call, but Saturday looked like it was going to be a good day, so off we headed.
We got to the site about 11:30. As we came along the trail, you could see the rock.

Just as we were heading to lunch, we discovered there were 2 painted rocks, not one, about 30 m apart. One faced each direction.
|Rock #2. Someone put up rocks trying to hide the paint|

Rock 1 came out very well, though with some green tinges. Painting it with rock paint made it so you could barely tell it had graffiti in the first place, even up close.
|As seen from the trail|
|Facing the trail|
|A deer on the road on the way in|
|A way too friendly chipmunk|
|Looking back across the still lake|
|A butterfly of some type|
|Lower Kananaskis Falls|
|The bridge across the Kananaskis River is unchanged|
|A herd of bighorn sheep on the road on the way home|
I was not thanked for getting the graffiti off. I was scolded for being late.
