~ Vandalism in Pima County's Tucson Mountain Park ~

(The Park abuts Saguaro National Park's Tucson Mountain District)

You may never have visited Tucson Mountain Park, but chances are that you've watched a John Wayne Western or two.  It's probably the first time you saw a real (not neon) Saguaro Cactus.

That's Old Tucson Studios in the photo on the left.  Old Tucson Studios is located within Tucson Mountain Park, and attracts visitors from around the globe. If they enter the park from Speedway and Gate's Pass Road, that graffiti-covered welcome sign above will be their first impression of this magnificent park.  What a shame!

Towering over Old Tucson Studios is Golden Gate Mountain.  You'll remember seeing it in the background at some time in every John Wayne Western.  It's the mountain I see in my backyard every day.

Vandalism is a symptom of the lack of emphasis we as a society place on personal responsibility.  Hey, it's not mine...  I didn't pay for it... 

Today I posted these photos and more on the Facebook Page "Tucson Mountain Park."  Click the link and go there.  You'll find the phone number for the Office of Pima County Supervisors and their email address.  Call them and leave a message.  Send an email.  Make a difference!

If you ever watched a John Wayne western, or if you've ever visited the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum (also within the confines of Tucson Mountain Park) please go there and express your outrage at the desecration of something which belongs to you
