"Why come to Colorado for no other reason than the beauty? I do not understand the mindset of people who want to destroy that," said Stephen Singer with Keeping Colorado Beautiful.

Keeping Colorado Beautiful is a nonprofit that professionally removes the graffiti.

Officials with Keeping Colorado Beautiful says it's really helpful for people to snap photos and pin them so the volunteers can plan a clean up route.

Anyone caught spraying the graffiti could be ticketed and fined for repairs.
