Rarely do things make me speechless, although I do tear up with joy frequently. Plitvices evoked both of these. It’s beauty is difficult to put into words, therefore, this blog will be written with pictures and only a few words.
Around every corner there is yet another awe-inspiring sight. Trails are clearly marked and you are not to leave the trail. One of the reasons for this ruling, other than the destruction of delicate flora and fauna, is the possibility of landmines from the Croatian War for Independence.
The travertine walls of the park create the beautiful turquoise water. Every where you walk the energy is uplifting.
The park is filled with animals of all sorts, birds were singing, but most chose to avoid the public.
This guy made a brief appearance, much to the delight of his photographers.
I don’t know that my pictures do justice to Plitvices’ beauty.
The color contrasts of the park are spectacular!
A small rain storm brought the fish to the surface
and a lone duck out for a swim.
Through the leaves of the trees you can just catch a glimpse of the boat ride. I’ll bet the views from the boat are stunning.
Can you see now why I am at a loss for words? Plitvices Lakes National Park is breathtaking.
