Two roads diverged in a yellow wood...

The road, which had run straight for several miles, has now bent left and goes down into the lowlands of the Yale on its way to Stock. But another road branches off to the right, winding through an oak forest and headed to Woodhall. This is the road Frodo decides we need to take.

It's a picturesque route, in some ways, because one of the first things we came across was a huge hollow tree that would make a great playhouse.

We haven't heard hoof-beats for some time, so we're settling down a little bit. Frodo launches into a rather appropriate song:

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead
We'll wander back to home and bed.

Total distance thus far:
39.68 miles
