Geocache Name:

plitvice lakes (GC1FNKR)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2/1.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Beautiful places like these don’t form overnight. It takes thousands of years of geologic processes for beauty to evolve out of rocks and water. While photos may enable you to appreciate the vibrant colors and incredible scenery, an EarthCache like this one gives you an appreciation for the processes behind the beauty by teaching you about the sequences that took place to form it.
