~ Believe It Or Not ~ 1. Respect the mountain and nature spirits even if you are a skeptic. 2. When you need to relieve yourself, tell the "nature spirits" (say aloud) that may be lying on your path to give way to avoid offending them 3. Dont shout or make too much noise or you might disturb the "nature spirits" 4. When lost, talk aloud to the "spirits" to "set you free" and apologize for anything that you might have done wrong. 5. Never take what doesnt belong to you from the Mountain - "Take nothing, leave nothing but your footsteps"
