I didn't mention the monster that lives there, known as the "Kraken of Kerosene Creek". It likes its food well cooked!

But no, here's a section from the original high-resolution image from the camera, after I optimized the lighting and hit sharpen a couple of times:



What they're doing is standing close together while she holds up a phone in her right hand to take a selfie. In case anyone wonders, they had swimsuits on and there was nothing of a physically sexual nature happening.

Hi Scott.  Flathead lake sounds like a fun place.  I have Wiccan friends in Missoula and Kalispell.  My friends are older and have regular jobs and families to support so they wouldn't be able to take the summer off from regular responsibilities.   I'm not sure how best to advertise your summer opportunity.

Introductions / Work Exchange possibilities for Naturists
« Last post by Scott on April 23, 2019, 04:39:39 PM »
Hi,
I have been exchanging private accomodation (cabin or camping) for a few hours of work per day with young people for several years.  I live on four acres of orchard  and wooded land right on Flathead lake in Montana.  This is a very good place for skinny dipping and generaly being with out clothing as most of my property is fairly private.  I am a new member and want to know if there is an appropriate way to make this opportunity known, especially on the associated site for Young Naturists.  I do have excellent reviews on the help X web site and air bnb.  The work involves garden, yard and orchard work and helping with air bnb rentals.

So, I went ahead and let a personal matter stay in the story. Not a usual event found in a nude hike story.

That third picture with Dan in Kerosene Creek, there is something in the water behind him. At first I thought a creature a sort of a cross between a koala bear, a mule and a lion. Nope, but then, what. My last stab at making sense maybe a guy with a large donkey. What are we looking at? ???

Definitely a wonderful day in a wonderful place. Glad that you all got past the obstacles and got enjoy yourselves in the nude.

Well Nuduke, Dan is pretty much as you describe him. Just add "personal charm"! About that "dress"--when he wears clothes, he's 100% a skirt man, and his answer to the perpetual question about underwear is "There's only one way to wear a kilt." (It's not necessary to repeat the usual joke.) I'm sorry to say, Dan is already a member here, with the name FreewalkerMA, but he's never been very active. I've told him about my report on the NZ trip and perhaps he'll comment eventually.

Onward.

Basing ourselves near the hot spring center at Rotorua, we did some touring nearby. Rainer has asked me not to show any pictures where he's recognizable, so you will see some use of The Hat.                       
   

So, a day after seeing the town, we set off for a day of touring hot pools. We started early, hoping to get some of the places to ourselves.

Waiotapo is one of the best, and popular with tour buses. “Wai” = water, “tapu” = sacred. But it's boiling, so not a spot for a swim.

But then—Kerosene Creek! We weren't early enough to avoid everyone, but it turned out not to matter.

This was one place where Dan didn't show off his enjoyment of cold water!

It's a stream of hot water, just the right temperature for a long soak.

There's even a hot waterfall!

Yes, there were people there when we arrived. But Dan just asked “Do you have a problem with nudity?” and they said it was fine.

So we had a mixed nude-textile visit.

 

Breakfast beside the stream.

Eventually there was a fair crowd.

Next we climbed Rainbow Mountain.

There's a very blue warm pool at its base.

And a view from the top.

Steam rises from vents on the slope.

Next was “The Nameless Hot Pool” in another stream.

This is very hot water, and you can't sit in it for very long.

Another clothed encounter, and as usual, no problems.

And more warnings of danger.

Next, on to the “Hot and Cold Pool” where a hot stream meets a cold one.

Again, “Does anyone mind nudity?”

Time to go. Sigh.

I liked the word “Trundler”.

Another evening in Rotorua.

 

Dinner cooked by me! Eggplant Parmesan, with some substitutions of ingredients.

Wallabies are a pest? Apparently.

We went to a series of waterfalls, but swimming wasn't really a possibility.

 

There was white-water rafting going on.

 

You can go down steps to a cave, but there's a locked gate at the entrance.

We chatted with some local people and their American guests.

Our last evening at Rotorua.

The following day, we drove on to the complex of gold-mining tunnels and walkways at Karangahake Gorge.

Warnings about this and that.

 

There are toys you can play with, but the car was chained to the track, so no rides.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This picture is the previous one, processed with the brightness turned up to the max.

 

Same again.

 

 

I'm sure the tunnel with the gate is the best one.

 

 

 

 

Lunch beside the river, where a pleasant swim also  occurred.

We walked back through the forest, where you're asked to disinfect your shoes to protect the endangered kauri trees from disease.

 

 

This isn't a kauri tree.

 

They're always warning you about something.

And all the best stuff has gates to keep you out.

 

Our last stop of the day—I don't recall the name of these falls, but there were kids playing there, so no swim.

Some places here they have nettle eating contests. Turns the mouth black, apparently.

we can spend 2 weeks as textile tourists in France and Switzerland. Jacques-Marie, what are the chances of meeting?.

It would be a pleasure to meet you. I still have no plan for this period of summer. Keep me informed of your trip;
