Once couples only, clothing-optional event now a regular day in the park
Over the years of Tim Long’s friendship with Michael and Dawnzella Gearhart, they’d told him about this little event they put on.
So, three years ago, Long made the short trek from Tukwila to Issaquah after the Gearharts finally talked him into attending.
“I wasn’t sure what to expect,” Long admitted. “But after a few minutes, I felt quite comfortable.”
After all, Long learned quickly, as the saying goes, if you don’t do as the natives do at Nudestock, “you stand out like a sore thumb if you don’t.”
Long plans to attend again this year Aug. 29, even though he hasn’t yet become a member.
Dawnzella said the event is open to everyone, whether they’re members or not. Like any other time, visitors to Fraternity Snoqualmie Family Nudist Park get a free one-day pass to the event. Read more

Question: What do you wear when you go to officially count naked people who are trying to set a world record?
Answer: It really doesn’t matter what you wear when everyone else is naked.
That’s one thing I discovered last weekend when organizer Dawnzella Gearhart invited me to Fraternity Snoqualmie to be an official witness to the group trying to set a Guinness Book of Records record for the number of people skinny-dipping. (There were 186 there and many of them were thrilled to bare all for the certificate they got at the end of the dip.) Read more
