Bag End to Rivendell, Day 15 of 28

GEMS 1.32

Oct. 7 – Day 15 (1st from Weathertop): 19 miles

(7 Oct – 15th Day from the Shire – Dawn) In the night, the Nazgûl attacked. I couldn’t find Mr. Frodo, then I heard him cry out as from far away — strange words they were! Then, when he appeared, he was bad hurt! Strider fought the cursed things off. At full light, we made our way down to the Great Road. As we crossed, we heard the Riders and ran into the brambles. We camp here tonight. Strider says Mr. Frodo’s wound came from a Morgul-blade and is cursed!

Oct. 4 – Day 12 (5th from Bree): 17 miles

“It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, — the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were…But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

Weather Foothills, 12th Day from the Shire
Tonight we camp by a proper stream and trees.  Well, the trees are stunted alders but they sure beat the Marsh.  The moon is turning her face away and in a week or so the night will be too dark to see much at all.  (from The Journal of Samwise Gamgee*)

Midgewater Marshes, Day 11 from the Shire

“We walked all day and we have to make camp here again tonight! Strider says we’ll be out by tomorrow.  The Neekerbreekers are giving us another sleepless night.  We can see Weathertop from here to the east with some kind of bright flashes of light * over it.  I miss the Shire.

* What neither Sam nor the companions could not have known was that the lights were Gandalf’s magic on Weathertop as he fought off the Nazgûl. Gandalf had arrived in Bree the day after the companions left it, but because they told had told Barleyman, innkeeper at the Prancing Pony, that they were headed for Weathertop, Gandalf rode straight there. The remaining four Nazgûl attacked him there and he outwitted them and escaped.
