Spray Painting Grand Canyon


Lucien Lionel Chenier Charged With Spray Painting His Name On Grand Canyon

So much for "leave no trace."

A Canadian man faces two federal charges after allegedly spray painting his name on a famous Grand Canyon National Park rock formation.

Lucien Lionel Chenier, visiting Monday from Ottawa, Ontario, only managed to scrawl "LUCI" in red letters on the Duck on a Rock outcrop before his screaming tour leader and other bystanders stopped him, the National Parks Traveler reported.

When asked why he thought it would be wise to graffiti the popular landmark, Chenier said that "It was so special that if he left his name then his kids would be able to see it 20 years from now," according to a U.S. District Court complaint filed by Ranger David Robinson.
