Dajti Crest Revistedblue hike

Summary: See also Dajti Crest Trail and Dajti.  In May 2014, we went again on the Dajti Crest Trail. The trail markings were slowly fading away, the trail was more overgrown, and the areas destroyed by fire in late 2012 were slowly recovering. Regardless, it remains a prime hike in Tirana. This time we concluded the hike with a direct trail to the (real) summit.

And we had good luck with the views!
