Brave swimmers frolic in the water after jumping off the pier during the 10th annual Polar Bear Plunge at the home of artist Gary Price in Springville on Tuesday. At left, 9-year-old Fischer Olpin steams in the cold air after a swim. Participants start off the new year with a winter dip at the Springville pond, fondly called the Price Family Peace and Meditation Garden, on the Price family property. Price's tradition holds that plunging oneself into the New Year's waters signals a new beginning.
