There are several nudie groups in southern California, I just got back from a nude hike to Jedi Canyon in Hulda Crooks Park, Loma Linda, CA with one of them, the Inland Empire Naturists. Someday there will be one for northern LA County that I won’t have to drive a hundred miles to get to.

Ya know, it was really too cold to be out there nude all the time. I think it was in the high 40s when we started. I settled for some brief nudity at the turn around point just for the camera. As usual, I don’t include recognizable photos of any anyone’s face but mine. Backsides are a different matter…

It was strange to be nude so close to civilization without being in an officially approved event – and to have to cover up periodically as we encountered the textile impaired. Seriously, there was no cover and there was visibility for a great distance. Nobody seemed to mind that there were naked people hiking the hills. But we didn’t encounter young children and we didn’t let anyone get close before the coverup. If either of those had been different, maybe the sheriff’s department helicopter would have paid a visit.

It was 5 guys and a woman. I think having the woman along counts for something, especially when we encountered other people. It somehow makes the whole thing less threatening to the people we meet. The more I think about the thought processes of the textile impaired, the stranger they seem.
