In the midst of one of the worst drought periods in California's recorded history, it was a "sustainable" (drought-friendly) idea by Humboldt State University students and staff to do the ALS Ice-Bucket Challenge on Sept. 12 by jumping into the Pacific Ocean in Trinidad Harbor. HSU and other campuses were responding to the original drought-friendly challenge at Chico State University.

It should be noted, however, that when Chico students took the plunge, they did so into a heated swimming pool. Drought friendly? Yes, but decidedly not ice buckety.

Local photographer Mark Larson caught up with the HSU folks at Trinidad Harbor, and passed along these pictures:
