Zeb and Eider Duck are in Nederland, Colorado for Frozen Dead Guy Days. Yesterday we showed you the parade. After the parade, we went to Chipeta Park
for the Polar Plunge. That reservoir is frozen. The human plungers wear costumes for this event. Here is a grandpa look alike ready to take the plunge.
These humans are also waiting for their turn to jump into the icy water.
A large rectangle has been cut through the pond and the ice removed. The humans will jump into this icy water. The fire department water rescue men are in the water to help if there is a problem.
You can see that being ready to rescue humans can be a very wet job.
These two humans are dressed as bacon and eggs.
They are scrambling as they jump into the icy water. Behind the water, you can see the warming tent for the human participants. This is a great way to enter the cold water.
This really looks cold.
But these two scientists checked and didn’t think the water was cold enough.
They are adding more ice to the pond. And now they are in the water.
This is like swimming, but bikinis in icy water?
We ducks did not go into this cold water. We like warmer water. Keep reading our blog to see more of the fun at Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland, Colorado.
