Whoever did their art, is quite talented. Why they would chose to do it in a national park and on a otherwise healthy tree is beyond me. I sure wouldn’t want to be caught, or do my art on a live tree. A dead stump perhaps, or a log of wood already cut. A beautiful tree…thank you for sharing.

Why, indeed!!! Why had someone to do this in a living tree? A very good example for the weekly challenge ‘emotions’.

@HennyJA My thoughts, too. Thank you.
