Edward Abbey in his book Desert Solitaire

“No more cars in national parks. Let the people walk. Or ride
horses, bicycles, mules, wild pigs--anything--but keep the automobiles
and the motorcycles and all their motorized relatives out. We have
agreed not to drive our automobiles into cathedrals, concert halls, art
museums, legislative assemblies, private bedrooms and the other sanctums
of our culture; we should treat our national parks with the same
deference, for they, too, are holy places. An increasingly pagan and
hedonistic people (thank God!), we are learning finally that the forests
and mountains and desert canyons are holier than our churches.
Therefore let us behave accordingly.”
