Hiking to Rosi

Well, it’s summer in Valbona.  A few days ago Alfred and I took a group of Austrian Hikers and botanical enthusiasts up to the Qafa (pass) just west of Maja e Rosit (Rosi Mountain).  After climbing up through the beech woods, you hit these Alpine meadows which are a riot of flowers. A bit further (and windier, rockier, colder and more like the top of the world than ever) we passed fields of the rare Albanian Lily and wild Fritillaria (Fritillaria messanensis?).  Then a wee skip across some snow (is this officially a glacier?) and we got a brief rest before heading back down.
