Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but paint. While taking a sunday stroll through the mountain barangays of Cebu City with the merry people of Zylun we noticed neon orange paint sprayed on tree stumps, trunks or bamboo groves. This is probably made by mountain hobbyists who are not aware of the “Leave No Trace” rule of mountaineering or they just don’t care about the rule at all. Some people choose to take the path of the wild to see nature at its most primitive but they don’t care if they changed its state by introducing or leaving something that is not supposed to exist there. So, when you’re in the bushes please pick up your garbage and don’t paint the trees.
