Bringing in the new year with a splash

Bubba Highsmith enters Scotts Flat Lake in Nevada City Friday afternoon with the year 2021 emblazoned on his chest, alongside a group of Cascade Shores residents. The polar plunge continues to be a New Year’s Day tradition. Groups were spaced out more along the shore than in previous years to aid in social distancing.
