The Tolkien Trail

Photos are up for part of the walk: flickr was cranky and I will be (hopefully) adding the ones it rejected later. Meanwhile, enjoy the latter part of the section we walked. For a map of the trail, you can look here: We walked from the Cromwell... Sign in to see full entry.

We drove by yesterday. School's in session now, so visitors are not welcome on the grounds, but I did get a few... Sign in to see full entry.
