    The Llogara National Park extends also at lower elevations. At these elevations, the landscape is very different and in spring, carpets of flowers with bright color dot the landscape. The second photo is a close-up on a local kind of daisy and what I feel is a local kind of anemone (I must check if this is right and find the definite name of this flower)

    Around Llogara pass, the landscape is rugged. The pine trees cling firmly to the rocky slope in order to resist to the winter ferocious winds. Several species of bushes and trees are found only in this area, which explains why it was made as a National Park.

    When you are at the viewpoint near the top of Llogara pass, your attention is first caught downwards by the magnificent landscape over the Palasë beach and the sea. It will be usually after that caught upwards towards the impressive range of the Çika Mountain.

    You might miss what is in between, on the soil! When we were there, we watched the show of a dung beetle (Scarabaeus sacer), the sacred insect of the ancient Greeks. It was carrying a ball of dung to its home, where it would feed its offspring to be, the eggs being soon laid in the middle of the larder!
