The Los Angeles Times is reported illegal fires, illegal parking, littering and other forbidden activities taken place at Joshua Tree National Park.

Abbott, a 54-year-old Marine Corps veteran and paraplegic who is well known in the climbing community, said he has also been trying to talk visitors out of illegal fires, illegal parking, littering and other forbidden activities.

Abbot stated to the Times, “70% of the people I’m running into are extremely rude,” Abbott said. “Yesterday, I had my life threatened two times. It’s crazy in there right now. We’re seeing so much damage. the park’s transportation concessionaire, keeps bringing them.

It’s reported that bathrooms at Joshua Tree are overflowing, locals are volunteering to clean the toilets and leave toilet paper for visitors, and campground registration system is off-line, there’s no one to collect fees or assign campsites.

The Desert Sun reported, “On Saturday afternoon, hundreds of motorists poured into the refuge and parked on the side of the road so they could climb, hike and take photos of Skull Rock.”

Some stand-up park volunteers and supporters say, “the park needs to shut their gates.”

    Branson, so you’re saying that the federal officers that protect our border are stupid? How dare you. They say we need a wall but somehow you’re so damn smart that you know better than they do. Genius
