Absolutely this!! I jumped into Ortenburger Lake a couple of autumns ago. Cold!! but delightful. After a week in the Bob Marshall, Gibson Reservoir was an absolute delight!On long trips I'll jump in a lake in the buff after four or five days. Its so refreshing.
Back in the 90's, I jumped in the western end of Gibson Reservoir near the K-L Ranch, after a week long backpacking trip to the Chinese Wall at the end of September. It had snowed the night before and without question, Gibson Reservoir was the coldest water I have ever been in. When I jumped in, it literally took my breathe away.Absolutely this!!

When I worked in Katmai and Kenai Fjords, the northern Pacific was my bath tub. Makes for a quick bath; oh but it feels great when you're out and drying off.
While rafting the Gulkana River about 15 years ago, a woman in her 20's(?) came rafting along topless. We were fishing at the time she passed by. She didn't bat an eye.
Had my 11 year old daughter (now 12) down there this last June. Glad we didn't encounter the same. That would have made it real awkward for her.Not something I would ever think about doing but I mean to each their own. I can kind of understand it if you're wet or its just really hot out.
The first time I went hiking in willow gulch It was over 100 degrees out and my wife and I saw a group of dudes hiking naked round a curve in the canyon. Once they saw us they darted back down stream a little and we saw them clothed about a minute later. Must have not expected anyone else out in that heat.
