The article discusses the experiences of Chris Wallace on his hiking activity in Mount Lemmon, Arizona. Wallace, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church usually goes to the mountain for a self-meditation. She states that it is her one way of releasing tensions from work and that it gives her some source of spiritual strength. However, what irritates her most is the charge that the Forest Service collects from the hikers. As a legal secretary from Tucson, Arizona she together with some anti-fee supporters argue that trailhead fees would amount to double taxation as they have already paid it in the form of income taxes. She notes that the use of public lands is also included by paying taxes. In this manner, rising complaints against her resistance to pay have reached to the court.
