Driving further south, on our way to Gospic, we stopped for the afternoon at Plitvice Lakes National Park. Amazingly enough, we’d been there in 1972, but hadn’t actually gone inside the park, so had no notion of the wonders that lay inside. It was truly stunning: not quite on the scale of the Grand Canyon, but almost even more interesting because of the variety of water, plants and rock.
It was raining throughout most of our visit, but that didn’t stop us, and we stayed for a couple of hours more than we planned. Plenty of photos resulted. Some of these have had the iPhoto “Enhance” filter applied to them to sharpen and punch up, which is why you’ll notice some variation in the colouring.
If you are anywhere near Plitvice in your travels, it’s certainly worth a visit.
