The Seven Wonders of Middle Earth

In your opinion, what are they? I'll start with (in no particular order) the 7 of ME in the 3rd Epoch. You can include Beleriand in it if you want to, though.

Mt Doom
Caves of Aglarond
Rivendell
Galadriel's mirror
Erebor
Cirith Ungol
Meduseld

I didn't know where to put this thread, because it isn't really mirth, but it's not a discussion or a quiz or a quote game.

The Argonath should be on any list of Middle Earth Wonders.

Nice one, it should be eight wonders of the middle earth with the Argorath added on the list.

It was very hard to decide on which places'things to include, since many had historical values and many were simply grand. Maybe we should make a few lists of the ME Wonders, like there are the New 7 wonders, the Old 7, the Natural 7 (just nature), and some other list that I can't remember.

I concur!

Thats a beautiful picture. Does anyone know how those statues were made? Any help from the Vala (seams like there should be)?

I'd add Weathertop to my list.

No, I don't think the Valar helped. Elendil and the other Numenorians could build very big and strong.......things. Remember that they also built Orthanc and how nothing could even make a scratch in it? I'm guessing that there used to be a mountain cut in half by Anduin, and they carved the Argonath out of it.
