I would be a complainer if I said it was cold out, because a few hundred more daring and braver souls than me ran into Lake Michigan just for fun. And charity. Enjoy these snaps — and I am sure there are many many more to choose from out there.

Although we are well bundled, some are just talking their clothes off getting ready for the walk in the lake. Just a few minutes…! More photos río come.

Beautiful but cold night for a Photowalk. Unbelievable noises coming from the almost frozen lake.
