The Personhood of Mountains

... is now a thing

I am intrigued by the growing trend of recognizing the personhood of important creatures, such as trees; and parts of the world, such as rivers and mountains.  If only we could do this for the redwoods and Bear Butte and so forth.  Because every biker who's ever had his ride knocked to bits after sassing that mountain already knows it's a person.  And the redwoods are almighty terraformers, so.  It's a thing.
