I have taken some mighty steps today, to reach the Redhorn Gate, ahead of my climb to Caradhras tomorrow. It is so bitterly cold here, I can barely feel my face. Matters were made worse because I lost my bearings somewhat, and wandered for quite some time before finding the correct path. Not that it really matters too much – I may as well be walking in the cold as sleeping in the cold!
I am hoping that I am feeling sufficiently strong enough to make this part of the journey on myself. Of course, the company had the very able and strong bodies of Boromir, Aragorn and Gimli. I just have myself! All of my fellow kin members are probably enjoying the last day of Yule Festivities. Hmmm now that has made me feel jealous! Nevermind, I set out on this quest, and am determined to complete it.
