Clothing-Optional Spots in Idaho
If you feel like letting it all hang loose, here's some places in Idaho where clothing is optional!
Who knew there were so many places right here in Idaho where you can be naked as a jaybird if you like. I thought this only happened in Europe and Mexico, but no, we've got a lot of nudity going on around these parts!
