We went for a mucky hike this week in search of a sauna built into the side of a tree! We didn’t know what we’d find when we were hiking the trail. Maybe nothing at all?
Or maybe something incredible!
Leif and Lily packed their own packs for this hike. Leif had his rain coat, rain pants, pliers and knife. Lily packed a swim suit for some just-in-case saunafication along with her rain gear.
The hidden and hushed sauna was there and sits next to a lovely meandering creek and lush mossy beds all around.
At first glance, we were wowed and then as we got closer we were feeling really let down. It looked like the place had been ransacked by beasties with bits of plastic, a strewn first aid kit and random flip flops all about. The telltale sign of beer and cheap liquor bottles suggest that it was a drunken free for all that made such a mess. A shame because the sauna looks well supplied apart from being extremely unappealing in it’s current shape. Next time I’ll know to bring garbage bags with me for a bit of clean up.
