“The ruins of old military bunkers, batteries and other defensive structures are scattered throughout the Marin Headlands. Most of them are in a state of abandon and disrepair, crumbling, falling down, and covered with the graffiti of a modern world that no longer remembers why these buildings were here.”

Graffiti Photo #3.  Yes, it’s still graffiti and probably not supposed to be there, but some folks can sure do some talented things with spray paint!
