Pictures of outdoor saunas

This is an aspirationally titled posting, Maybe my sauna photo will be the only one. But here it is, heating up on the last day of February.

Check any picture I've ever posted here from Memphis in the summer. Humidity and heat galore.

Although "Vara" sounds Finnish, it's not. But since my first sauna experience, maybe 30 or 40 years ago, have taken one pretty much every week. It's great.

Head to Houghton, UP, Michigan and take pics. Everyone, every no-tell motel has a sauna. Big Finnish diaspora. (and great Frisbee tourneys in the '80's.)
