Nude Raft Trips
By Beverly B. Price
Grand – and magnificent, splendid, glorious, superb, impressive, awe-inspiring, majestic. It is impossible to be in the depths of the Grand Canyon and believe that the word “grand” says it all.
I have traveled with other nude passengers all 280 miles of Colorado River from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead. I have been in the majority of the stunning (and all different) side canyons. I have also made shorter trips to be hauled out by chopper at Whitmore Wash. Each trip is unique.
The rafts splash through numerous rapids. The water is cold and deep and swift. Or they float along in serenely where only the descending call of the canyon wren can be heard. Or they pull up to a campsite for the night next to the warm water of a side stream.
The canyon bighorn sheep are unafraid of the rafts. The stars are endless. It is a spiritual experience and one that should not be adulterated.
Teddy Roosevelt perhaps said it best on January 11, 1908, when he stated, “Let this great wonder of nature remain as it now is. You cannot improve on it. But what you can do is keep it for your children, your children’s children, and all who come after you, as the one great sight which every American should see.”
If you would like to experience the great wonder of nature – and do so naturally – there are nude raft trips planned. Simply send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for information. Please put “Grand Canyon Raft Trip” in the subject line.
We have visited multiple AANR member locations including Cypress Cove Nudist Resort, and Lake Como Family Nudist Resort and Community and we have enjoyed Florida’s Haulover Beach for years. There truly is something liberating, tranquil and very social about nudism and naturism.
