Being graced with the presence of a nudist may not be such a rare even in Colorado as some would believe. According to Wikipedia Colorado is a nudist friendly state. There are over 12 clothing optional recreation areas in Colorado, making it a very popular place for nude hiking and going to hot springs in nude. Due the natural beauty of the state nudist colonies are attracted to the wilderness that our state has to offer. However, designated areas are the only accepted areas for not wearing clothing.
