MarieSam Sanchez and Tommy Walden are a happy couple, but when it comes to college football, they live in a house divided! Walden, a former @ucla Bruins basketball player, and Sanchez, a @uscedu graduate, have been married for 18 years. They love one another, but during rivalry week, their loyalty lies on opposing sides!

Graffiti has been removed from the bottom of Ubehebe Crater in @deathvalleynps. Ubehebe’s dramatic beauty makes it a popular destination for park visitors. Late last month, vandals scratched large letters and symbols into the mud in the crater floor. Rain could have washed away the marks, but rain is rare in Death Valley. Seven park employees spent nine hours spraying water from a tanker to clean up the marks. When the water dried, the graffiti was gone and the natural color of the crater had returned. Anyone with information about the vandals is encouraged to contact the park. Photos: Death Valley National Park.
