Words of advice:

Sound travels quite a long way in the valley, so noises should be kept minimal. Remind ourselves that we are there observing nature. If you happen to notice unpleasant occasions such as hunters or trappers, please do not in any way attract unwanted energy. There is a lot at stake if we aggravate these people, so best is to avoid them and not show opposing suggestions or remarks.....the peaceful way is the best way.
