Welcome to day nine of the A to Z Bloggers Challenge! Thank you for reading! Today we'll be discussing one of the earliest American graffiti favorites: Independence Rock, Wyoming. Yes folks, it's true. Those silly webpages claiming graffiti started in the 1960s are wrong. Long before it became a popular form of entertainment and vandalism for bored teenagers, America's pioneers were carving their names in a giant rock in Wyoming, the halfway point to their destination: California.
