That rock on the left has been called graffiti rock.

Seems it is the taggers favorite place for swastikas   and tags.

But Dan Foshee several years personally adopted that rock, and has diligently been clearing, scrubbing, using everything he can find to cover the crap.

Hats off to Dan.

Morris Lake is clean and clear. The fishing sucked though.
