Mountains have a decent influence on men. I have never met along the trails of the high mountains a mean man who would cheat and steal. Certainly most men who are raised there or who work there are as wholesome as the mountains themselves. Those who explore them or foot or horseback usually are open, friendly men.

—WILLIAM O. DOUGLAS, Supreme Court Justice, Avid Hiker, 1898–1980
