oooooh my goooood i’m hiking in fucking utah and i came across sollux carved into the goddamn million y/o sandstone
I actually live in Utah. This upsets me greatly… that’s Arches isn’t it? Fucking hell I went there for every summer vacation.
Actually no, let me explain why I’m pissed here cause some folks might not get it. Cause after taking a closer look at the photo that is either Canyon Lands or Arches, and more specifically, Delicate Arch Trail. And let me tell you something, I fucking adore rock climbing, being away from it all and in nature in these areas. It’s great. It’s fantastic.
But whoever did this has no respect for other hikers. Or nature.
Because no fucking hiker wants to see a god damn fan art in the national park that contains some of the state’s best natural beauty, that is CARVED and SHALL REMAIN FOR EASILY THE NEXT FIFTY YEARS(AND PRETTY DEEP AT THAT) into sandstone. Because I do not want to see that plastered all over this:
Because that’s Delicate Arch. At the end of the trail. And that whole area took millions of years to be created. You doing that to that cause it’s hurr durr funny at the time? That shit is gonna be there for a long, loooong time son. Hell the only graffiti that should be allowed? Is this:
So who ever did this piece of shit fanart? I hope you’re fucking happy. Cause I sure as hell am not.
In short, fuck you, the idiotic portion of the homestuck fans who think this is awesome. It ain’t. Hussie? I hope you’re happy knowing your creation is the reason someone just defaced a public park. Congratulations.
okay you know what? i was going to ignore all of these and just vagueblog but this was full of it and making loads of assumptions and i’m rly tired of everyone yelling at me
firstly, this wasn’t close to delicate arch u rude punk this was in snow canyon it’s like fucking five hours from there??? this area i was at (rockmaster in the petrified sand dunes if you wanna get real specific) covered with signatures and drawings by people who reached the top of the point.
hurr durr your ass okay this entire area of utah is covered in 200 million year old rock you wanna get upset bc someone thought it be kinda fun to carve a tiny picture of sollux in sandstone? pls get over yourself and recognize that this is something that happens loads in this particular area, there are no cave/cliff paintings or carvings for miles where the hundreds (yeah hundreds) of initials and drawings were.
this isn’t the arches, this isn’t the petrified cliffs, this a single sand dune in an area covered with petrified sand dunes that ppl love to hike and then sign. also why are you so insulted by this??? when i went up with a bunch of experienced hikers (many who live in the area) they didn’t bat a lash at any of the signing. also how many ppl are you expecting to homestuck oh my god? chill
ps: that’s sandstone you’re talking about in a desert climate this shit doesn’t last more than a couple decades when it’s barely carved into the rock with all the erosion and ice wedging etc. that goes on here. i thought rock climbers would know about, you know, rocks
pps: i visit here every other year for my summer for a good month or two for the most part and live with people who have spent their entire lives living in st. george and around these parks and have never heard it being disrespectful to do this when it’s so far from something like the arches or the checkerboard at zion’s or the archeological finds like the cliff art
