On Tuesday of this week i went on my first Naturist hike with a group. Nantahala National Forest was where we decided to do a 10 mile hike and we started around 11 A.M.. I thought it would be a piece of cake for me but in less then a mile i was so winded and tired that I had to stop. NO ONE TOLD ME WE’D BE HIKING UP A FREAKING MOUNTAIN!!! Suffice to say, i elected to turn back so the others could continue their hike in peace and at the pace they had set. I was truly embarrassed but i knew that i couldn’t keep up with the others who were all seasoned hikers.
After about 20 minutes of rest my pride and determination got to me and i decided to continue on my own at my pace. I surprisingly made it 2 more miles before i had to turn back. I could have gone on much further but i knew that if i didn’t turn back at that point i might miss meeting up with the group when they came back down from the mountain. So i turned back, deciding that I would take pictures on the way.
The pictures truly don’t do justice to the area. It is very beautiful and peaceful. My trip down the mountain was quite enjoyable as the wind blew and i could feel the cool wind on my skin. I was nude going up the mountain and going all the way back down to the river where we first started and it felt great.
I actually squatted in the river for a few minutes to clean my rear end off because after sitting on the trail times my butt crack had leaves and dirt all over it. I was not going to put back on my shorts without a quick wash up. As soon as i had finished putting on my shorts I heard someone behind, a family of four out to take pictures on the trail. I was glad i had my clothes back on at this point. Even though there is no federal statue or ordinance about being nude on Federal land, we had decided to be respectful and try to remain clothed near the entrance to the trail so as not to upset any families.
After I rested for a few minutes i decided to walk some more to keep myself entertained so i decided to follow the trail to a scenic waterfall called Laurel Falls. I figured the family i had seen earlier had went that way so i decided to stay clothed.
Laurel Falls was a beautiful scene, even though i had to walk a mile to get to it. I also caught up with the family i had seen earlier and talked with them for a bit. After a few pictures we all walked back to the entrance to the trail and they left.
After the walk to the falls i was exhausted, hot, and kinda miserable so i sat down near the road and rested for almost a hour before once more i decided to do something with what i felt would be the last hour before the group returned and we left. So i decided to check out the camp site i had heard one of the guys mention. As you can see from the pictures above it was a nice, kind of isolated spot so I sat down and disrobed and spent the last hour naked before the guys returned.
When everyone came back we decided to drink a beer and check out the river a bit. The beer tasted pretty good and we ended up laughing, joking and taking pictures of the river and each other.
After the fun and games we returned to the hotel, showered, and went to eat at a Mexican restaurant. After that we sat around the hotel room naked and shot the shit for a few hours. With one of the guys taking a few pictures of me sitting smiling. He used my camera of course.
So around 12 A.M. we all went to our rooms and crashed for the night, saying our good byes that night because i knew i was going home in the morning. I went with two of the guys to Hardee’s for breakfast the next morning and then I headed home.
