Today in Middle-earth.
TIME - October 10
October 10, 2941 (S.R. 1341)
1. Row upstream against current. Camp.
(from Karen Wynn Fonstad, The Atlas of Middle-earth-no text)
..."In two days going they rowed right up the Long Lake and passed out into the River Running, and now they could all see the Lonely Mountain towering grim and tall before them. The stream was strong and their going slow."
October 10, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. Strider presses them on.
(not from the appendices)
..."Four days passed, without the ground or the scene changing much, except that behind them Weathertop slowly sank, and before them the distant mountains loomed a little nearer.
...Yet since that far cry they had seen and heard no sign that the enemy had marked their flight or followed them. They dreaded the dark hours, and kept watch in pairs by night, expecting at any time to see black shapes stalking in the grey night... ...but they saw nothing, and heard no sound but the sigh of withered leaves and grass. Not once did they feel the sense of present evil that had assailed them before the attack in the dell. It seemed too much to hope that the Riders had already lost their trail again. Perhaps they were waiting to make some ambush in a narrow place?"
I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
