Taking advantageof Saturday's balmy weather, this group puts a new twist on the traditional trip tothe old swimming hole. With an aluminum skiff delivering them to the edge of Grass Island in Eldred Passage, they climbed up 20 feet or so and jumped into the water below eight times.

The jumpers are, from front to back, Cody Ferguson of Spokane, Wasl., Eli Porter, Abe Porter and Joel Smith, all of Nikiski. "It was a lot warmer than we thoughtit would be, but it was chilly," Eli Porter said.
