The Los Angeles Times profiles the resort in Apple Valley, California.
A few feet away, three 20-ish women relax in a second pool. If I forgot to mention it, they're nude too. Beads of sweat glisten off their bodies. I try not to stare. It's not easy. I should mention that I'm in my birthday suit too.

I hike back to talk with Hippie Dude, who tells me the baths are not segregated by gender. No rules, man, he says. No clothes. No hang-ups.

I feel like I have just stepped into a '60s commune.
