Freaky Blue

Today we hiked along miles and miles of boardwalk around some freakishly blue lakes in central Croatia. The water in Plitvicka Jezera national park is saturated with dissolved limestone which settles out to create travertine - and colors the water various electric shades of blue.

Fall colors were just beginning to emerge and reflected gloriously in the glassy calm water. And waterfalls were cascading everywhere. We could easily have spent several days exploring the area.

Conditions were idyllic and I could not stop snapping photos. Lucky for you I am only posting three


  1. We would be luckier if you posted even more photos!

    Peace and Aloha,
    Alan and Bruce

  2. I've heard of this place and seen it on some documentaries but never got to see it in person. Lucky you! Incredible!
