It takes a particular type of arrogance to believe that the national parks of the Western United States would be improved by your crappy artwork, but hey, that's apparently what was going through Casey Nocket's head as she travelled through Yosemite, Crater Lake, Death Valley, Zion and elsewhere painting acrylic versions of stuff from the back of high school notebooks as she went along.

Even better, she cataloged this vandalism across Tumblr and Instagram.

Ms. Nocket got at least somewhat wise and set her photos to private, according to the website Modern Hiker, but through the power of screenshots, it would seem she'll be having an unpleasant conversation with the authorities soon.
