The Glittering Caves of Aglarond
During the siege of Helm's Deep, women, children, the elderly and injured sought refuge in these caves. Later, Gimli persuaded Legolas to tour them with him. Tolkien's description of the enchanting vistas is one of the most lyrical in the entire trilogy, in my opinion. Just listening to the normally taciturn Gimli made me want to depict them.
