Sauna in extreme cold is something (wonderful) to experience

We’ve talked about it many times. When it is this cold outside, sauna takes on an extra special feeling, and provides us an extra special experience.

Note Brian’s reflection in the window.  He has just fired up his sauna and is gearing up for round one.

When it is this cold outside, the classical elements of fire, earth, water, and air do strange (and wonderful) things:

When it is this cold outside, we exit the hot room, steam billowing, endorphins rushing, and we become euphoric in the moment.

  1. As long as my feet stay relatively warm, I love staying outside in sub zero weather, after cold plunge or after a dunk of cold water, until all my skin gets dry from billowing steam. And my hair freezes up. 20 deep breaths. Maybe a generous swig of a cold beer, gazing up at the night sky. Quiet. Solitude.

    I can’t get enough of an extended cool down in sub zero weather… it smells like… victory.
