Plitvice Lakes are in the Lika region of Croatia (where Mike’s family was from). Nestled in the mountains, there are 16 lakes lying at different altitudes separated by natural travertine barriers, linked by foamy cascading waterfalls and surrounded by a frame of lush greenery. Stunningly beautiful, and extremely well protected as a national treasure of Croatia. We hiked for hours and hours, exhausting ourselves and the battery on the camera as we tried to drink it all in.
