In Algonkian Regional Park (http://www.nvrpa.org/park/algonkian/) located in Northern Virginia, settled right on the Potomac River, lies an area very close in resemblance to Tolkien’s Middle Earth land of the western banks of Anduin where Frodo and the Fellowship arrive after leaving Lothlorien. Anduin, in Sindarin, means a “long river” or “great river.” Depiction of the River Anduin


Imagine the Fellowship arriving on these banks and then settling here.
