Plitvice lakes with Mum

This is the third time that I have visited the UNESCO World Heritage Plitvice lakes in Croatia - but both other times (in 2009 and 2012) we were on our way to somewhere else and it was summer - so shorter time around the park, much less water, more people and no autumn leaves... So I can definitely say that this was my best time ever...
As we stayed two nights there, we had the whole day to wander around - and even though it was October, there were still many people (the park gets around 1 million visitors each year), but we were happy to let them through so we could get people-less pics...
There was a lot of water - as unfortunately the park was actually flooded about 2 weeks before we came, and so some areas were still no go, but there was still loads to see and we walked around for 5 hours which was plenty for us!!
I decided to do photo collages as there are so many lovely places and lakes, waterfalls and cascades - so it was hard to pick just a few...
There was plenty of water and with the autumn colours, we were pinching ourselves around each corner as it just kept getting better and better...
I am glad that Mum's first experience of the lakes was so spectacular, but any time you go it is just amazing... and around every turn is another reminder of how awesome God is!!

Had that same feeling and therefore took far to many pictures with my camera, Dawn's camera and my phone!

And yet the only photo you put on fb is of Dawn struggling to get somewhere bc of the flood water?? :) I am glad we were there out of the rain - it poured that evening, so we were indeed blessed!

Wowweeeeee!! I wonder what it's like in winter time. Do the cascades and waterfalls freeze?
