Geometry of the Chessboard: Reti Endgame Puzzle

It is white to move. It looks impossible to achieve a draw here. Black's pawn is way out of the white's king's range. It seems white has to either try to queen his c pawn, which looks impossible or chase down black's h pawn, which also looks impossible.

White to move and draw. Hint: Use the geometry of the chessboard to move two directions at the same time!

I'm excited to really start blogging again. My next blog post will be about the Turkey Shoot Tournament in San Antonio where I scored 4/5 points. I drew a master, but I also drew an 1800 rated player.
