Coot Lake

Outside Boulder Colorado, June 1979

After arriving in Boulder our merry little band set out to look for jobs & an apartment, but also enjoyed some of the finer aspects of leisure in the area, including several visits to a swimming area called Coot Lake. At Coot Lake dogs were welcome & clothing was optional. Coming from Puritanical New England this was a new experience…

Up to this time my only experience with “skinny dipping” a quarry in Rockport with a small circle of friends. at Coot Lake hundreds enjoyed the mild waters sans swimsuits. At lunch time you could always see a gathering of Rockwell defense employees peering thru binoculars across the water but no one seemed to care. It was Colorado fun in the summertime…

What do you think?
