Account #1 – Around 540 PM, I pulled into my normal parking spot at the first trailhead (nursery rd) in the dirt spots directly off the road and observed the two cars immediately next to me had their windows smashed out. I left and went to park somewhere else due to the circumstances.
Account #2 – Hey, all. Just want to give you all a warning. My car was broken into the Monument Rock, nursery road trailhead. Apparently, the girl’s car next to me was also. She was so sweet and left a note. But these dirtbags went straight to Walmart and spent over $500.
