Zero Daze

I take a zero (a day of no hiking) in Idyllwild to let my blisters heal and recharge my battery (figuratively and literally). Stay at a quaint inn with Tuck and order pizza with five toppings on it. Drink red wine out of flimsy plastic cups. Eat two kinds of Oreos (double-stuf and birthday cake flavor) in front of the fireplace. Give Doc two slices of leftover pizza in exchange for checking out my feet on a bench outside the coffee shop. He gives me a clean bill of health. Buy a new hiking shirt from the discount bin with long sleeves so I won’t go through sunscreen so damn quickly. Eat an apple. Take a shower and watch the water swirl down the drain: dark brown, light brown, clear. Eat more Oreos. Sleepin a bed (a real bed!) Wake up and eat more Oreos.

Here are some photos from the past week:

  1. Hey Mollie, I’m rooting for you. Hope you remember me…Carole S.’s man. My daughter Jessica went to high school in Idylwild. Great place. Best wishes for blister recovery soon


  2. I love your blog Molly! This is the first time I have seen/read it. Congrats on your trip, it is so inspiring and making me feel like I really need to get off this couch at 12:00 on a Monday. Also it just made me cry, I may be PMS’ing, but regardless there were tears! Xo
