A Riddle-Mathom as I cross the border from Rohan to Gondor Can't Post

If you find the answer, please put it in the body of your reply.

Whither has fair Evenstar gone?
Far from home she is now.
To the West she is now, and a little bit South,
Of Rivendell, seat of learning and her home.
Past Hobbit and Shire,
Weathertop, too,
And to Gil-galad she has said her adieu.
So where in the world is poor Evenstar now?
I fear she's a trifle confused!

A hint, as it looks like I was too obscure [In reply to] Can't Post

All the proper nouns in the riddle are place-names of a sort (and a business) in a real-world city.

my guess [In reply to] Can't Post

after doing a little search on Google Earth is that you might be in Fort Collins, Colorado?

...??? [In reply to] Can't Post

I fear I would have lost that game with Gollum and had to use Sting...

Go outside and play...

You got it! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've driven past those roads for years - whenever I go to the north end of Fort Collins. Now that they get the references, my kids get a big kick out of it!
