|Trail head started easy enough|
|Easy path leading up into the forest|
|And then came the stairs... 543 of them.|
|Boys rest on a giant rock|
|I couldn't get enough of the fall colors!!! It's been too long! |
We don't see this in the desert of Doha or even in Houston!!
|We made it!|
|A stunning waterfall!|
Isn't God amazing!!! His creation is breathtaking!
After a glorious 3 nights in Lake Bled, Slovenia, we headed back to Croatia. First stop: Rovinj. A beautiful little town right on the coast. The old town consisted of tiny little pedestrian alleyways full of restaurants and art galleries.
|Our apartment just outside of Rovinj was about as local as you could get. Ken could barely fit our oversized van up the tiny alleyway to get there! But it was super cute inside!!|

Then to Pula ... with a great Roman amphitheater. We loved that it is still used today for community events!
|Stickers are serious business|
|And if they weren't doing stickers, they were drawing pictures. |
This one is of the Ninja warrior competition they watched on TV the night before.
We had another amazing drive from Pula to Plitvice, Croatia - our final stop. Lots of tunnels. We also drove through the longest tunnel I've ever been in - 3 miles long! Again, the fall colors and mountains and coast line we drove through and around were stunning! Reminding me again just how awesome God is!!
Plitvice was such a beautiful place! Heaven on earth!!! It was a series of 16 lakes with hundreds of waterfalls! It was a leisurely hike for a couple of hours, then we broke for lunch and took a little boat ride across the largest of the lakes. The second half of the hike was a bit more strenuous, but not too bad. At the end of that trail, we caught a shuttle bus that brought us most of the way back. We only had to hike a little bit more at the very end. It was really cool the way they put it all together!
