The agency posted photos to Facebook on Friday showing a wooden platform covered in white spray paint overlooking the mountainous north Georgia landscape at Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests. The photos show vandals had scrawled symbols and explicit images on the park's Johns Mountain Overlook deck outside of Gainesville.

Park officials added that the "extent of this vandalism damage" is greater than pictured, prompting an indefinite closure.

News outlets report the park service condemned the damage as "senseless" and asked all visitors to do their part in keeping public lands clean.

It's unclear if authorities are investigating.
