After the cold winds of Caradhras proved too much to cope with, I made my way back through the snow. It occurred to me that Saruman must have been very angry to have continued to keep up this level of snowstorm. That avalanche is completely impassable still to this day!
The option faced by the Company was to either return to Rivendell in shame, or face a traumatic journey through the mines of Moria. Although the lazy days I shared with the elves is a very enticing prospect, I know deep down that I have to follow Frodo’s path in to Khazad-dum. Ho hum!
Actually, I think I better get a move on too. I am sure I can hear the sound of hungry wolves!!!
