It seems to come from the belief that the mountains and surrounding wildernesses are a temple at which worship is to be offered. Or that it is a place to recharge the soul and appreciate God's creation. Why can't it be both, or all, at the same time? Are these places we go to so small that there is not room to enjoy the hills in more ways than one or two?


Are atheists allowed to enjoy the mountains as well?

The generation before mine used to routinely leave their trash all over the backcountry.

^^ Hey, that's great! :D

I have always loved pikas, not just because of their appearance, but because when you see one, you know you are in a neat place -- high up in the mountains. Pika territory!
