NPE and I took a short trip to Oklahoma recently. Seems like an unlikely place for a resort of any type, but to find a naturist resort beautifully tucked away in the middle of the ultra-conservative Midwest seemed almost too good to be true!
But it’s actually there, and it’s absolutely beautiful!
Oak Lake Trails is very Oklahoma; rural, outdoorsy, simple, and surprisingly beautiful and serene.
As the name implies, there is a ‘lake’, though technically it’s probably a ‘pond’. Either way, it’s lovely…
…and inspires conversations far deeper than its depth, and relaxation far wider then its breadth.
The main draw for us was the 6mi of wooded hiking trails. Ah, what lovely wood nymphs we made, and what spectacular wood NPE was sporting! The feeling was the purest of enjoyment; sun dappled shade, caressing cool breezes, the unobstructed kiss of nature on every inch of skin … spiderwebs… yeah, not so nice there, nor the (rare) bugs.
But what’s the most soothing thing you can possibly do after a nice warm hike? Relax in a blissfully cool pool! Floating on my back fully nude on the cool water, soaking up the sunshine – THIS is the pinnacle of sunbathing! Truly the deepest state of well-being I’ve achieved in recent memory!
