North Fork Skykomish near Troublesome Creek Gorge

Been a little lax on my posting . . . because, as you guessed it, I've been busy hiking nude all over the place. I'd like to share a nice place I came across hiking the top loop of the Index-Galena Road near the Troublesome Creek Gorge. Scenic and very tranquil for an afternoon exploring the water-smoothed granite and the alluring glacier-green of the river's crystal waters.

This segment of the river is along the closed county road and gives miles of nude walking. Leaving most of my pack at one former campsite, I can hike freely with nothing more than shoes, hat and minimal supplies to truly enjoy. That's my favorite way to hike.
