“Well, what did you find?” Lindir asked as Elrond dropped to the ground. “How far does the forest stretch?”

Elrond wiped his sap-sticky hands on his tunic and smiled. “Far beyond what I can see,” he said. “It is as Círdan said: a squirrel could likely pass from here to the Hithaeglir without ever touching the ground.”

The sound of music suddenly reached them, but not Elvish song. “Hop along, my little friends…” Elrond blinked, and the strangest little man danced into view, with a feather in his hat and bright yellow boots, followed by at least a dozen rabbits.
