Terrain challenge - molten - 'Molten Gold' : Kortirion

Title: Molten Gold
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s – all names and places are his imagings... Kortirion just plays there.

Aragorn trudged up the long slope. He hoped the ever-rising ground that did not look difficult, but proved a strain on legs and back would soon ease. Finally, the path levelled, dipping away behind dark pine, and beyond... a glimpse of... gold?

He paused in wonder; what seemed a pool of molten gold encircled a glade of slender, silver trunks, still naked of leaves... nine trees rooted among many, many golden flowers... a near perfect circle.

He shuddered involuntarily. Shaking off a brief prescience, he shrugged, smiled... Gandalf would laugh when he mentioned a simple golden circle had unnerved him.
