Lake Padden Polar Bear Plunge 2011


A discarded bottle lay serenely on the thin layer of ice covering Lake Padden the morning of January 1, 2011. The calm of the morning, and the ice, was shattered by what came next.

POLAR BEAR PLUNGE!!!

My brother-in-law and I, and a couple hundred other crazy people, discarded our clothes in the 28-degree air and plunged into the ice-covered lake on New Year's Day. An exhilarating way to kick off 2011!
