All of a sudden it has become quite clear to me why it is so cold! My travelling for today has ended with me looking out on the cold peaks of the Misty Mountains. Now I should know the names of each of the peaks, having spent an evening with Pashrin Skullcrusher the dwarf where he insisted on informing me of the complete history of Durin’s folk. I don’t think that he noticed me snoozing. One of them is quite possibly Caradhas, which is where I am heading.
One thing is for sure, the peaks don’t look very inviting. Now Moria may not be the most pleasant of places, but could it really be worse than those freezing cold mountains? Hmm maybe. The company obviously thought so!
Anyway, I shall end my travels here for the night. In the cold. Oh for one of those nice yule scarfs that I have heard mention of!
