...Right.

Name, in order, all the hills/mountain ranges that Frodo crossed on his journey between its start in the Shire and its "end" in Mordor.

It's Ephel Duath, not Ered Duath, but otherwise fine. Go ahead.

This is probably wrong, and missing a lot, but here goes...

Cirith Nin-niach
Pools of Ivrin
Sirion
Narog
Bay of Balar
Belegaer

I wasn't sure if a couple counted, or if to put them on twice if he traveled on them twice.

Hmm. A good job by Goldberry 101 .
. I think at least two bodies, one mentioned (Sirion),
should be cited twice. Remember, "body of water" isn't limited by
size. So I suppose at least nine names (at least two repeats)
should be in a longer list. (I'm not counting, although perhaps
they should be, the fountains of Gondolin---since they're
artificial).

Cirith Nin-niach
Pools of Ivrin
Sirion
Narog
Bay of Balar
Belegaer

Belegaer?
Pools of Ivrin

Sirion?
Bay of Balar

That's the major ones. I think there could be four more
water features (three of them rivers), although the
rivers are just passed briefly. Your work is good enough,
but if you care try for the others, if not I'll list them.

1.Lake Mithrim
2.Cirith Ninniiach
3.
4.Belegaer
5.Pools of Ivrin
6.
7.
8.
9.Sirion
10.Narog
11.Sirion
12.Bay of Balar
13.Belegaer

Good work, Goldberry101 .
The three rivers (Narog, Teiglin, and
Malduin) are mentioned in passing in UT.
For number three I was thinking of the Firth
of Drengist. I don't know that there's definite
indications of Tuor seeing the Linaewen.
Your turn.

1.Lake Mithrim
2.Cirith Ninniiach
3.(Firth of Drengist)
4.Belegaer
5.Pools of Ivrin
6.Narog
7.Teiglin
8.Malduin
9.Sirion
10.Narog
11.Sirion
12.Bay of Balar
13.Belegaer

I don't know any. Someone else can go if they want to. If no one goes within a day or two, then I'll think of one.

Won't someone go? I am afraid if I ask one I would get the answer wrong.

Rune: Hello Thread, how have you been?

The Thread: I have been feeling just awful, I thought everybody had forgotten about me.

Rune: I didn't and now I found you

The Thread: About time. . .



Anyways it seems that after almost two years it is now time for a new question.

Name two tributarys of the river Teiglin
