experience that doubt merely melted away.
I discovered how "blind" I had been before, smothering nearly my entire organ of touch with clothing. Hiking clothed
was like trekking with my hands over my eyes and peeking
through small slits between my fingers.
I craved the touch of the wind where it'd never
touched me before. I could feel the slightest changes in temperature.
One summer I took a trip to Moab, Utah. I had learned about
a trail called Negro Bill Canyon that had a tradition of nude
hiking, and I wanted to check it out.
Went through a tall slot canyon with a perennial stream
running through it. Trees and vegetation filled the foundation, and
Moab's characteristic reddish stone towered above.
After the halfway point, the trail rose above the vegetation
and plunged into a side canyon. Austere beauty encircled
me---cliffs and rock formations here, a partially formed arch
there, all blazing with color.
the end of the trail I found a small
shaded cove beneath a big arch.
Water dripped down a slit in the wall,
and I understood that trickle would become
a waterfall during a rainstorm. The
water formed a little pool in the
Centre of the cove. The shade and
moisture cooled and refreshed me.
On my way back, a thunderstorm swept in.
The sky crackled with thunder and
lightning, and the wind funneled
through the canyon. I walked through
a narrow corridor with willow-like
trees thrashing on either side of me. At
the trailhead, I lay with my nude
back against a flat,, sun-heated boulder
and chill the top of me.

trail I needed to explore that was further up the highway from
Negro Bill Canyon. I decided to take a quick peek at that trail
before driving into town for lunch.

into view, enticing me to walk a little farther, and a little further, and a little farther. . . .
The principal formations came into view, and they were breathless. Tall towers that looked like cathedrals and grotesque
statues right out of Lord of the Rings loomed above me. There
was an eagle head, a gargoyle, titanic sundials. One formation
