Lennie returns to the place where he and George originally started their exile in a place by the Salinas River that is described with adjectives like "noiselessly" and "quietly." From the beginning, Lennie is instructed to return to this place of protection and safety. It is a world inside of a world, a true shelter, just like the Garden of Eden.
