We are human beings whose purpose in life is to live, to experience, to be aware in this moment. We have been graced with a body, a vehicle, in which to do just that. Yet, for most of us, this wondrous sense of being is inhibited by clothing and trapped into an extremely limited range. Even those of us that acknowledge our human rights of nakedness are limited to indoors, maybe a back yard space, or a visit to a naturist resort.
This does not have to be our lives. We do not have to be cooped up like chickens. We can expand our birthright much further, adding flavor, depth, health and the inner peace of spiritual oneness to our lives.
EACH WEEK, through enjoyable (OR acclaimed) stories and pictures, I will show you with delightful highlights, the very practical skills that I have used to accomplish body freedom here in the Southwest. There is a bit of “Arizona Highways Magazine” photography with insight into the unique flora and fauna, ultralight backpacking, camping, hiking and boating, all from a free-range naturist’s perspective. As a side, I’ll post short informational essays about naturism, like health, mental health, or spirituality.

    Beautifully written and superb photos. It was quite lovely meeting you and look forward to hearing from you. Truly am interested in getting some info from you to put in Camping Bares nudesletter. Also, I did forget the name of the raw food cookbook! Hope to hear from you soon.


  3. Hello Jon Michael,

    Just finished reading your review of Redington Pass in the Spring, 2016, issue of “N” magazine.
    Kudos on the excellent writing and great photos! I have been a regular visitor to Tucson every
    April or October (occasionally, both months) since 1988. A trip to Redington is always on my itinerary. First discovered that gem after reading of it in Lee Baxandall’s famous guidebook, “Nude
    Beaches & Recreation.” My home since 1980 has been in Santa Fe and our high desert terrain
    is totally different. Those Arizona granite boulders, giant saguaro, prickly pear, and barrel cacti are
    exciting beyond description. Your synopsis of that naturist’s sanctuary is brilliant and whets my
    appetite for the next visit this autumn. Keep up the good work!


  4. Thank you , I’m heading back to he desert and will be seeking out crested saguaros !


  5. If you ever come out Los Angeles way, there are quite a few deserted trails in the Angeles and Los Padres National Forests I use, not to mention assorted hot springs and a real live legal nude beach.


  6. Let me know if you ever come to southern California. I have some nice places to hike that get very little traffic.

    So refreshing


  8. Living in the Southeast for the moment, it is difficult to find places to hike nude as I did in CA. Your stories keep the imagination inspired until I can once again hike unencumbered and free as nature intended!

    Just discovered this wonderful blog while researching clothing optional recreation in the southwest. Found the articles to be very well written, informative and full of great photos of the beautiful Arizona scenery. We live in central Tucson and have visited many of these great places highlighted in your blog and now have new ideas for our future naturist getaway. Looking forward to your next edition, keep up the good work!
