We have retaken our place beside the lake from which we caught some trout, so long ago, the trout that Elijah seasoned with the hazelnuts which were discovered by Clarissa.
Elijah thought it good to take one more day to prepare before launching into the city on our next quest.
So, after a lunch of fresh trout (without hazelnuts) we climbed up out of the valley that cradles the lake in order to get a closer look at the city.
We had to go a considerable distance to rise above the tree line and gain an unobstructed view.
Its wall appears intact, though the skyline beyond is not what I remember. Hit by the fire from heaven?
