From Hochoch, the Realstrem is quickly crossed at the shallow ford, and you follow a caravan track that winds along the south side of a narrow creek. The plains here are flat and grassy. Occasionally, large cottonwood trees grow along the stream but in general the plain is un-forested.
For several days you pass through an uninhabited region with no untoward experiences. Finally, staying always to the right of the creek, the track enters a region of prosperous farms surrounded by fields of grain or pastures for cows and goats.
Early on the fourth afternoon of the trip, a cluster of buildings and trees becomes visible ahead, with the stone walls of a temple beyond-ORLANE.
At the outskirts of Orlane, a large grove of elms is visible to the left, while several wooden buildings border the road to the right.
