Day 73: Zero In Etna
Zero. As in no miles today. Wonderful lazy day.
The Alderbrook B&B looks like a nice place but I have not been inside it. They also operate the Hiker Hut. This small building, pictured above, has 4 bunks, a bathroom with shower, and a common area with couch and chairs. Laundry room is in the basement of the main house.
With only 4 bunks most hikers are camped in the yard. I got lucky to get a bunk.
The town is almost a half mile away and the two restaurants are another half mile. They have a dozen bikes here because the last thing a hiker wants to do on a day off is walk.
I ate, grocery shopped, did laundry and soaked my feet in Epsom salt water. Also napped. Was lovely. I had long phone calls with Gayle and we planned for her visit in 3 weeks. I hope to get to Sisters, Oregon by 8/14 and meet her there.
Scenic town; love the mural. Glad you rested there for a day and got to talk at length with Gayle…too bad Jorn can’t come with her to see you!
