In the middle of our second week in Croatia, we drove 3 hours from Split to visit Plitvice, our third and last national park. This was the part of the trip I had been the most excited for and it definitely did not disappoint! We spent two days and one night in Plitvice. Our plan was to check out the upper lakes on our first day and the lower lakes on the second.
Walking through Plitvice's wooden planks made for a very magical experience that is difficult to put to words. We were surrounded by stunning views of turquoise lakes, running waterfalls of all shapes and sizes, and lush green backdrops everywhere. I remember on our first day, there was a moment where I suddenly felt a strong desire to worship in song as we were hiking. It was hard not to be moved as I saw the splendor of God's majesty displayed throughout the park. It was seriously gorgeous and breathtaking at every turn. On our second day at the lower lakes, there was another moment where we stood at the top of a waterfall looking down at a lush, green, and flowering valley. I couldn't help but imagine that this was probably what being in the Garden of Eden felt like. I also couldn't help but feel like I got to experience a little taste of heaven while we were there. Even though my photos don't do justice, I'm thankful that they allow me to look back and remember what it felt like to step foot in this magnificent place.
Just capturing as I go.
