Sow Na Not Saw Na.
Many residents in the Lake Vermilion area have family roots in Finland. And the country of Finland is synonymous with the sauna.
In other words… if Lake Vermilion = Finland and Finland = sauna, then Lake Vermilion = sauna!
This long standing connection makes it unnecessary to explain the benefits of the sauna to many who live on or near our local lake.
The Atlantic Magazine has a nice story about the Finns and their love of the sauna. The similarities between Finland and the Lake Vermilion area are obvious in the story line and related photos. The article is entitled “Saunas and Silence” and you can read it here.
