Title Skinny-Dipping on Easter
Description SKINNY-DIPPING ON EASTER June 8. Jensen 575 West 800 South Orem, UT 84058 Professional Division First Place Anecdote Several girl friends and I were overcome with April spring fever. That accounted for our foolish, spur-of-the-raoment decision to go skinny-dipping on Easter Sunday in the Sanpitch River which runs west of Fairview. We placed our clothes and picnic lunches carefully on the bank. In our underwear, we dared one another to be first into the cold water. All went well for a while until we heard the pounding of horses' hooves. The town's ruffians, who were also "Eastering," had discovered our plight. They raced their horses so close to the bank that clods of dirt fell into the water and made it muddy. They threw our clothes up into the high willows nearby and ate our lunches. During all of that time we kept ourselves submerged in the water, up to our necks. We didn't dare to get out. At intervals they called names and threw rocks and sticks at us. The harassment went on for hours o One of our tormentors found a nest of water snakes, which he tossed, one at a time into the water. Those snakes swam by leaping ito the air and down, not merely wiggling along. was a terrifying sight I shall never forget. Finally, when darkness came, the rowdies left. Half frozen, we scrambled out of the Sanpitch, found our clothes, and staggered home. 1
