couple with a ladder catching a falling star

"catch a falling star"

This reminded me of a song whose lyrics were "Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket. Never let it fade away". Except neither of us had pockets.

hikers in wildflower meadow

"wildflower meadow"

Hiking out of the forest and into a mountain or alpine meadow during the peak of wildflower season is spectacular. The blooms are concentrated in a small area and profuse. Sometimes there are also butterflies. Once in a while, there may be a hummingbird.

cyclist with old timber bridge in background

"timber trestle"

It was a pleasant surprise to find an old timber trestle bridge still standing in the forest. This one was once used by a logging railroad. Not very many of these wooden structures are still in existence after all these years of flood damage and forest fires.

bicycle crossing suspension bridge

"bridge crossing"

Twenty-two of us just finished an 11 mile bicycle ride through a forested park. In order to get to the World Naked Bike Ride, we had to get to the other side of the Willamette River by crossing the the Saint John's Bridge, a beautiful 4-lane steel suspension bridge completed in 1931.

hikers on Pacific Coast Range

"hiking on old logging road"

We hiked the Pacific Coast Range in late summer while it was still warm. We followed an old logging road through some clear cut areas. The area had been replanted but the new trees were still small which allowed us a view of the ocean.

3 runners running uphill.

"Mountain runners"

Mountaindale Sun Resort hosts a 5K run each year in the foothills of the Pacific Coast Range. Part of the course is through a forest of Douglas Fir. The runners ascend about 500 feet in elevation over a two third mile section of the course.

"Rooster Rock 5K scramble"

Rooster Rock is the name of a park on the Columbia River where a 5K run was hosted. It required scrambling up sand dunes in addition to running along a beach.

"ice cream boat"

What a surprise to see an ice cream boat at the beach.

"Fig leif 5K"

Once a year there is a 5K fun run on Leif Ericson Drive. Hence the name of the event is Fig Leif 5K. This giclee also appeared on the cover of N Magazine 31.4, summer 2012.

group of cyclists.

"World Naked Bike Ride"

Seventy of us rode our bikes in the day time world naked bike ride. Another 5,000 rode in the night time WNBR. The WNBR is an annual event in cities and countries around the world protesting against our society’s dependence on petroleum for energy. We also rode our bikes nude because nudity highlights a cyclist’s vulnerability in traffic due of the lack of respect from drivers. This giclee also appeared on the cover of N Magazine 31.1, fall 2011.

"coastal mountain hike"

One of the treats of hiking on the Oregon Coast Range mountains is coming to a clearing and gazing on the views up and down the Oregon coast.

people on beach with lifegaurd in background.

"beach with lifeguard"

I have had so many people ask me to paint "beach with lifeguard" again that I created this screened and stenciled print version. Although over a decade has passed, it is still rare to see lifeguards at nude beach in the U.S. because many religious leaders consider a nude beach as scandalous. Therefore, parks and recreation managers are reluctant to acknowledge the existence of a clothes optional beach under their care even though there are often more people at the nude section than at the clothed section.

People rowing ashore in a rubber dinghy with sailboat in the background.

"yacht tender"

Racing sailboats was one of the few sports that I did well in. My boat was a day sailer, big enough for a cabin, but not big enough to stand up in. Nevertheless, I like to call it my yatch. Sailboats have keels so you had to anchor in fairly deep water. To get ashore, you rowed back and forth in a smaller boat. The real yatchs had beautiful tenders with lapstrake hulls and wine glass transoms. Not me. I had a little inflatable rubber dinghy.

group of people walking through Arizona desert

"desert hike"

Being new to the desert, I was happy to have a guide lead this hike. She did a very good job, leading us along an arroyo, stream bed, never straying far from the water. I was amazed by the variety of desert plants and cactus.

Table Mesa Road, Arizona

group of people walking through forest.

"forest hike"

I always enjoyed hiking with others. Some people are knowlegeable about the local plants and others can indentify a bird from its song. Still other can tell you stories about the local history.

couple in hottub reading

"Hot tub all to ourselves"

If you can get to Bagby Hot springs early, you may get the tub all to yourself. Then you can stretch out and catch up on a good book.

Bagby Hot Springs, Oregon.

couple being waited on at espresso stand

"Espresso stand"

Espresso coffee stands are ubiquitous where I live and nudist resorts are no exception. The people serving food and beverages, however, have to wear clothing approved by the local health and sanitation departments.

"5K fun run"

I used to walk 30 minutes a day but my doctor told me that was not enough and I had to start taking medications to lower my cholesterol level. At the same time, I became aware of nude 5K fun runs at a local beach. I gave it a try but discovered I was out of shape. There were two more run scheduled for that summer and that was the incentive I needed to start running on a daily basis. It took two weeks before I could run 5K non stop. By the end of the summer, I could run 5K in 30 minutes. Better yet, I had lowered my cholesterol to where my doctor said I no longer needed to start the medications.

Couple walking away from their motorhome under canopy of big fir trees.

"magestic big fir trees"

When I think of the northwest, I think of magestic fir trees. I am not sure if the fir trees at Squaw Mountain Ranch are old growth, but they big and tall. When you walk from the parking area to the clubhouse, watch out for the big tree roots. You might see chipmunks running back and forth.

Squaw Mt Ranch, Oregon.

Couple riding bicycles around small lake.

"bicycling to resturant"

I try to walk or bicycle where ever I go. I finally found a place to ride a bicycle without any clothes on. At Laguna del Sol, you can camp almost anywhere around their 25 acre lake. If you choose to camp on the side of the lake that is opposite from the resturant, it's handy to have a bicycle. If not, walk. We all need the exercise.

outdoor vendors at naturist event

"event vendors"

Vendors at naturist events offer variety of handmade jewelry, articles of clothing, and art to see. That is in addition to espresso and massages.

people in cooking competition

"Chili cooking competition"

Everyone is busy with his or her job and it is easy to forget that on this weekend you don't have to wear clothes if you don't want to. Sad to say that on Monday morning, the neckties and pantyhoses go back on.
