Let's Get Naked: Willoughby's Nude Beach

Ever heard of Lake Willoughby? Do you know there`s a nude beach there?

Don't bring your camera or your libido with you if you are going to the beach. According to the regulation, cameras without permission and hanky-panky are prohibited.

You could find it yourself by following Route 5 north, and then choosing the right fork to the twisting and turning 5A. Park in the first lot on your left, and then follow the trail to the southwest cove. You will see a beach, or maybe, naked men and women.

If you decide to drop your clothes and join them in a nude sunbath, you would have a full view of the glacier-sculpted area. Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor are standing beside the lake, with a huge gap in-between, as if a giant took a bite out of them. People cannot see the beach from the highway, so don`t worry that they might get distracted counting nude bodies, and run into a tree.

Do you think it`s too cold to go beach right now? Though it`s still a bit chilly outside, it won`t take too long for the temperature to climb up, or for the ice to melt. Until then, you`ll also have other things to do at the picturesque lake.

"There was a fishing club with about a hundred people on the lake last week," says Frederick Kristofferson who has lived by the lake for more than 30 years. "They said the ice was a lot thinner than it should be."

"We are getting warmer, and the winter is getting shorter," says Dr. Jay Shafer, professor of meteorology. "The frozen days of the lake are a month shorter than 40 years ago."

That`s not a good news for the environment, but it`s definitely exciting for those sun-worshippers and the one who wants a flawless, all-over tan.

Once the weather gets hot enough, if you take a journey to the lake, you might see people who are sunbathing in the buff during the day, and having a late night party on this clothing-optional beach. Besides exposing yourself under the sun, you could also go fishing and boating on the lake, or hiking and exploring those two pre-historical mountains.
