Catherine Shaw, 23, was found naked near the top of a walking trail six days after being reported missing. An inquest into her death heard she had left her hotel on March 5 to hike alone when she accidentally fell from the trail. She had been dead from "multiple injuries" for about four to six days when she was discovered, Coroner Darren Salter said today. The young woman from Witney, Oxfordshire, had "removed her clothes" as she made her way up the mountain, the BBC reports. Her dad, Tarquin, told the court she was "comfortable in her own skin" and previously went to places "where nudity was accepted". Mr Salter said there was "no evidence of any suspicious circumstances or third part involvement" in her death.
Today marks the first day of summer. It is also, unofficially, Nude Hiking Day — a lesser-known holiday observed by a select but enthusiastic few. The law is on your side, if you play your cards right. Technically, federally owned U.
Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. In the Harz mountains in the north of Germany, there is a dedicated kilometre mile trail from the town of Dankerode to the Wippertal reservoir and back that is dedicated to naked hiking. France is also generally open to naked hiking, but do take care in other countries. A couple of years ago, Switzerland had to pass a law banning nude hiking because so many naked Germans were wandering over the border that local sensibilities were offended.
