Alphaelin has just left Hobbiton.
I almost laughed out loud when I this thread! I'm re-read this scene today and was wondering about the Stone Giants.

Really interesting link. To me, it seems believable that Tolkien might have asked about old tales of the area in the Alps he visited, or even asked about them based on having read 'River Legends'. Of course, we'll probably never know for certain where he first came across the idea.
Not all those who wander are lost . . . because some of us know how to read a map.
