We reached Hornburg and Helm's Deep.  After the Battle of Helm's Deep (!!!), we departed for Isengard.  We reached the end of the Huorns and turned west toward the Fords of Isen.  The red after-sunset revealed carrion fowl ahead, and a waxing moon is rising...

Blah blah blah, Gandalf advised Théoden to ride for Helm's Deep, then left on Shadofax.  We reached the road into the Deeping Comb and started the climb upwards into it.  A scout reported wolf-riders.  An orc band fled the advancing Riders.  Looking back, we can see the torches of Saruman's army.  (Eek.)

June 22nd to 30th

Ugh, I forgot to enter my info when the week was up and missed two days!  The steps still "count", of course, but not against the path to Isengard...  I'm well behind on my original goal to reach Isengard by the middle of the year, but maybe I can pick up my pace for the second half of the year.
