I love this place. You can still find some fossils there. I don't know if it's legal for you to take them .I've always try to follow the rule if you bring it take it out and if you didn't bring it in leave it there for others to enjoy. If you want to do graffiti go do it on your house. Not on a rock that has been there for thousands of years and will be there for thousands more, hopefully.
Another of those places to enjoy nature without a bunch of selfie queens throwing trash everywhere
