Plitvice Pathway

Photo of the Day

Today’s image shows you just what it’s like to walk on top of a waterfall at the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. As I mentioned in the previous post, these walkways are well-integrated into the landscape and keep you close to the most interesting sites in the area.

I have a feeling these paths might sometimes be tricky if the seasons decide they want to flood or freeze the area. In places, portions of the walkways were sometimes a bit damp from encroaching water. In the midst of a spring thaw, I imagine the water must get quite a lot higher than what I witnessed. Winter must also make walking on the paths into an adventure, but the sight of a host of frozen waterfalls probably makes you quickly forget about that slip that landed you on your behind.

I visited in the tail end of the summer and the green trees beautifully complimented the azure waters of the lakes. A hint of autumn colour was starting to shine through and it must have been a pretty spectacular sight a few weeks later.

So, I guess what I’m saying is that it’s probably a fun spot to visit any time of the year!
