Dear Readers,

Time flies when you are having fun, but we need a little time to recharge our batteries. The Hidden City Daily is taking a short holiday break beginning today–and with good news about an early delivery from Santa that brings our Fall Campaign total to about $28,000, just shy of the $30,000 goal.

We will be back in the saddle on January 4th. In the meantime, enjoy the following collection of our favorite photographs from stories in 2015.

Happy holidays and warmest regards,
Nathaniel, Peter, Michael, Bradley, co-editors
