Welcome to Middle-Earth  ☼  Mirkwood

Mirkwood was a dense and heavy woodland that made up much of the eastern part of Rhovanion or the Wilderland, that maintained its borders and relative shape for many ages. Its natural land features included the Mountains of Mirkwood, a sizable river the Forest River, that ran from the Grey Mountains down to Long Lake, and a smaller river that ran from the Dark Mountains to join with the Forest River west of the Elven-king’s Halls. This smaller river was enchanted to such an extent that it caused slumber and forgetfulness to anyone who fell into it.
