Walk to Rivendell and Beyond: There and Back Again Challenge! Can't Post

Last week was the late edition. This week, it's the early edition of the Walk to Rivendell! I'm grabbing the internet time while I can as my family is vacationing/visiting family in Arizona. Tomorrow, we're taking in the Grand Canyon before wending our way slowly homeward through the Colorado mountains. But, hey, there's a Walk to check in on! How's everyone doing?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 269.54
Cumulative miles: 14564.8
Miles along the journey: 970.99
Miles out of the Lonely Mountain: 3.99

We made it; we're off the Eowyn Challenge charts. Fear not, though! Thanks to the ever-so-talented grammaboodawg, we have lovely mileage charts to follow at her site (see the link below). Which means I can share the news that this week, we're bidding farewell to Bard as he rejoins his people at the ruins of Dale, after saying our farewells to Thorin and his nephews, Fili and Kili, all of them slain in battle. I'm gonna miss those troublemakers.

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 7
Cumulative miles: 617
Goal: There and Back Again!

I started the week strong with more gardening. Traveling and visiting with relatives hasn't involved as many miles as I would have liked, but they've all been interesting. We've been to the Painted Desert, seen thousand-year-old ruins of pueblos, and viewed planets and stars through the telescopes at the Lowell Observatory, among other things.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 9
Cumulative miles: 593
Goal: Group Challenge

Beamer got in some extra distance swimming with her brother and their cousin - a necessary break from the heat when we visited Phoenix!
