MOON ROCKS PARK, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Vandals have defaced some federal land near Pyramid Lake.
Burned tree stumps, trash and graffiti litter the otherwise serene landscape of Moon Rocks Park.
"There was beer cans and beer bottles piled everywhere," said park goer Kolt Mieras. "I cleaned up what I could, put fires out that were left burning."
Mieras was riding his rock crawler through the Bureau of Land Management land Sunday, when he said he noticed something burning.
"As soon as I dropped down into this little bowl right here, I saw all the damage."
The damage is the aftermath of what the BLM is calling a rave that was held Saturday night at the park.
"One it's illegal to have a huge event like this," said BLM District Ranger Scott Fischer. "This is the reason why we don't allow that sort of thing."
Fischer said they have an idea of who may be responsible. He said he's talked to a few people who held the party, but the investigation is still underway.
"Anyone we can associate with this will most likely receive some sort of fine and then restitution to hopefully get the cleanup done."
That clean-up though could take a while.
"It's not as easy as just going out and scrubbing it off," said Fischer. "We have to sandblast it off so that's going to take some time."
And even though it will be cleaned, Mieras has a message for the people responsible.
"Go elsewhere. If you're gonna graffiti something, graffiti your own property. This is Nevadans property, all of Nevada was slapped in the face by this."
