Vandals destroyed an iconic sign on the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Haywood-Jackson county line.
Rangers tell the Asheville Citizen-Times that the latest sign to be hit was a 5-foot tall wooden marker indicating the highest point on the parkway near the Haywood-Jackson county line. The sign was pulled off its stone base sometime in the past two weeks.
Seriously? What is this world coming to?
"Officials say the Cold Mountain Outlook sign is frequently stolen. They also have seen an increase in graffiti. ... Park rangers say they are seeing an increase in vandalism along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Rangers say several pieces of large equipment such as tractors and mowers have been damaged."
So folks want to steal a sign referencing an overrated story? (Sorry, I probably shouldn't say that.) That's just weird.
Anyone with information about this incident should call 800-PARK-WATCH or 298-2491.
