More Nude Hiking
The New York Times has an article about the nude hikers in Switzerland. It is the best article I have seen on the phenomenon.
Suppose families with children were out hiking and encountered a group of nude hikers, officials asked. Moreover, the name of Appenzell was popping up with troublesome frequency in the blogs and chat rooms of nude hiking enthusiasts.

I am not opposed to nude hiking but there are some uptight people who are. Some of those uptighters in this country are prosecutors who want to get elected. If you hike nude in this country, it is possible to be charged with a serious crime. An overzealous prosecutor could charge you as a child sex predator if a child were to see you. So be careful out there if you hike nude. Carry something in a handy spot so you can cover your "naughty bits" in case other hikers come by, especially children.

That said, read the whole article.
