ARCHES NATIONAL PARK -- About 30 volunteers turned out in Arches National Park over the weekend to deal with a growing problem: graffiti on rocks.
The volunteers spent Saturday scrubbing, rubbing, brushing and scraping the annoying graffiti left by park visitors from the rocks.
Volunteers were recruited by the Friends of Arches and Canyonlands Parks and by the National Parks Conservation Association.
Group leaders say it's frustrating and inexplicable that park visitors would deliberately mar the scenery.
National Park Service officials say they don't have enough staff to keep up with the problem and they welcome the help of volunteers to deal with it.
