I'm in Peja Kosovo this weekend.  in the country for a while for work.  the town is adjacent to the Rrugova mountains, aka the Dinaric Alps, which lie between Kosovo and Albania.  i gather the mountain range tops out at around 8200 feet.

this is the view from the balcony where i'm working from today.  have been working my tail off since i arrived in Kosovo last weekend.  seriously considering hiring a guide and taking a long day hike this weekend.

i appear to have found a guide for tomorrow & will apparently walk up one of the larger mountains.  today, i hiked to the edge of town and up into the hills.  this is the 'trailhead' with the mountains behind.

Very cool!  I spent some time over there just after the war.
