A Shortcut to Mountains

While The Return of the King was clearing up at the Golden Globes last night, I was finally getting to see the film at the Hebden Bridge Picture House (the best little picture house in Yorkshire).

I must have read The Lord of the Rings at least 20 times in my formative years. I greatly enjoyed the film trilogy (despite several unnecessary changes to the plot), but it left me wondering the same old question:

Couldn't they have saved themselves an awful lot of hassle if Frodo had caught a lift off the eagles in the first place?

Another thought then occurred to me:

Strange how those Mordor locations don't appear in any New Zealand tourism advertisements.

Postscript: Oops! Probably should have said spoiler alert.
