This was actually staged in southern Washington's Ape Caves with 8 of my closest friends.  One of the best adventures I could ever ask for.  Had to sneak a studios worth of art into the cave while my models posed nude for hours while I got the lighting just right. Guests to the cave that day had one hell of a treat when they stumbled upon our set up.  I remember parents and kids alike having a WTF look plastered on their collective faces while walking by.  It was amazing.
