Ringing out the old and ringing in the new

I found one of my favorite pictures from 2013, of a running friend’s cool-down stretch on a beautiful ridge in the Umtanum Recreation Area in central Washington. The following two were taken on the first day of the year–and at least one of these folks should resolve to perhaps do a few more walks, though I commend him and hundreds of other Seattleites for taking the polar bear plunge at Golden Gardens Park, Seattle, on Jan. 1, 2014.
