Polar Plunge
In a Jan. 1, 2012 photo, from left, Mallory Crocker, Makenna Crocker and Tina Malcolm run into Sunset Bay to bring in the new year at the annual Polar Plunge in Charleston, Ore. Some people got their feet wet, while others took a full dip. Only one person stayed in longer than necessary in the cold water to claim they conquered the plunge.
