Maybe it comes from climbing / hiking a lot, but when I see a beautiful mountain, my first thought is not "how can I damage this wonderful peak for my personal profits".

Wow! thanks for the reference.
I haven't seen or thought about that movie in years.
Great character movie and the climbing scenes
were realistic enough, not like the hokey crap
thrown at us these days.

Yeah, no nitroglycerin. :o Maybe movie goers these days have such short attention spans that they wouldn't sit through watching someone hammer pitons?
