It's one thing to carve your initials into a tree trunk. It's another thing entirely to carve your names into the protected red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, which is what Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend, Austin Butler, appear to have done over Valentine's Day weekend. Hudgens, who was posting quite a few photos of the couple's Sedona trip over the weekend, tweeted one photo of a rock with "Austin + Vanessa" inside a heart carved into it, the Arizona Republic reports. The tweet has since been deleted.

It's illegal to damage the iconic rocks, with a maximum punishment of six months in jail and/or a $5,000 fine. A Coconino National Forest spokesperson says the incident is being investigated. (Hudgens recently performed in Grease Live the day after her dad died.)
