Eowyn Challenge -- progress

Walking to Lothlorien

Miles travelled today: 9
Miles travelled so far: 17½ (475½ from Bag End)
Miles still to go: 444½
Percentage complete: 3.8%

Point reached on journey: I have passed the Ford of Brúinen, turned south on ‘narrow paths among folded lands’ and nearly reached the steep sided canyon.

Where I really went...

We went along the old railway track to Penmaenpool, crossed over the toll bridge (getting totally soaked in a downpour with hail in the process) and then climbed up into the hills before proceeding along the New Precipice Walk and dropping back down into Llanelltyd.

This was a walk I haven't done for many years and had sort of forgotten about. It is, however, G's usual "short" walk. (His other walk is about 20 miles, which he considers a mere stroll. Proper hobbit distances!) He was going out and I said I'd come if he wasn't going to go too far or too fast.

I don't have pictures today, though I may be able to tweak the ones I took with my phone. I didn't take my camera because I was walking with G who gets impatient if I stop and fiddle around. :)

To be honest I didn't realise it was 9 miles until I measured it; it only felt like about 7, but there was a long steep climb, so my legs are feeling it now.

Now to relax and watch TV for a bit...
