Getting back on track! And look at that-- I'm over halfway to Rivendell! I can almost taste the lembas! ;o) (True Tolkien-obsessed fans are probably disappointed by that silly joke. Lembas is what elves eat when they journey, but I honestly can't recall if they also ate it when "at home"-- or if we ever learned much at all about what else they do eat...)
TOTAL= 231.4 / 458 miles
Reached foot of the Weather Hills and camped there. Now following path south toward Weathertop...
