Real places/lands in the world that remind you of Middle-earth lands Can't Post

Does anyone have photos or have seen photos they would like to share that reminds them of the lands of Middle-earth? I know we see many places in LOTR and TH, but I'm curious to see if anyone has "seen" others in either their travels or online :)

My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!

Neat! [In reply to] Can't Post

I live in north Idaho so I might be able to visit COTM someday! That would be very interesting (though I wouldn't put Mordor on the highest list of places to visit lol).

I drove down [In reply to] Can't Post

to see my sister in the Tri-cities back in August and I definitely agree with the Palouse reminding me of Rohan! I think it reminds me more of Rohan when the grass is brown, but I suppose Rohan's grasses would be more green in early spring.

(Though to be fair, your photo is definitely cultivated farm fields and not native grasses). But the Palouse- definitely Rohan!

The photo you posted of the Oregon river reminding you of Nimrodel- if you swapped out the pines for the mellorn trees with yellow leaves, and added a little waterfall, I can totally see that! I need to put that on my list of places to visit someday as well :)

For me, pretty much anywhere in the mountains where I live (I'm just on the other side of the ID/WA border near Coeur d'Alene) reminds me of the western slopes of the Misty Mountains when the company exits the mountain in TH. In fact, if I didn't know better, I'd say those scenes were filmed in Idaho!

that Oregon river [In reply to] Can't Post

is the Metolius. The Springs of the Metolius, where the river simply appears out of the ground, is a magical place. It's near Camp Sherman, which is a bit west of Sisters.

I'm not the only one reminded by this one: [In reply to] Can't Post

Its actual name is Mordor Pound, NT, Australia.



And Rose drew him in, and set him on the harpsichord bench, and put little Wilhelm Friedemann upon his lap.

He began composing a fugue. 'Well, I'm Bach,' he said.

Multnomah Falls, Oregon a.k.a Rivendell [In reply to] Can't Post

You see this as you're driving by on the Columbia River Highway and it is breathtaking, especially if you're in a LOTR state of mind - and Oregon does tend to put one there.

Such an amazing place [In reply to] Can't Post

Saw an article that listed it in the top 10 places you should see in the US, so the Nottasackvilles stopped there once on a family car trip - WOW were we shocked! Wish we would have reserved more than just an afternoon stop-by.

And yes - very much Mordor.

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville
