Have you ever been to a place where you have timed everything perfectly and it all just came about so effortlessly in your travels?

Isn’t this place simply stunning? The fall colors are so amazing and I really lucked out for such an amazing combination of great weather and beautiful fall colors. There’s so much more to share so I will have a part two section coming up soon. Please stay tuned when I visit the lower sections of the park and a wonderful ferry ride through Plitvice lake.

    Noel, these pictures are great. I have visited Plitvice lakes, however not during Autumn. Great to have a window into Plitvice during a different time of year!

    Gorgeous shots! This place is on my ‘list’. Was planning a trip in the Spring but I changed my mind since seeing this post — it looks like Autumn is the best time to visit! Plitvice can get very crowded in the summer. What’s it like now?
