Almost daily, people walk into the Hverfjall crater in North Iceland and draw some kind of image or write in it. Every other day the Environmental Agency have to send people to remove it. Among the things recently drawn in the crater are a giant penis. Davíð Hansson, specialist at the agency says this has been particularly bothersome this summer. 

"We respond every time and comb over the writing or drawings but they don't disappear until it rains."

Below you can see the post put up by the agency to tell people to please stop disturbing the natural environment.
