Our guide informed us that the rest of our trail was used far less and one member said, “How often do I get to say I hiked naked!” as she undressed. I fully agreed and in a few seconds my clothes were off. So for few of us the second leg of our day not only turned into a skinny dipping adventure, but also a nude hiking, also known as “free hiking,” trip. About a half mile later, just before we reached our destination one of my fellow naked hikers just in front of me waved her hand in the air and called out “Hi!!!” I looked over and saw two hikers watching slightly befuddled as we passed. I smiled and carried on without a hitch, content and unashamed, happy to be dressed in nothing but nature. I imagine they had a story to tell when they got home. But maybe…just maybe that simple wave and hi from a naked hiker is all the love it will take to inspire one of them to find and join us for the next hike. And after all “It’s All About The Love,” right!
