This afternoon we got to explore Krka National Park with sunny skies before the next round of rain clouds show up tonight.
Since it’s off-season, we get to pay a discounted rate. We paid 30 kuna for adults and 20 kuna for kids 7-13 years old. Luka is 7 but didn’t get charged so our grand total today was 100 kuna ($14.85 as of 11/2019).
You can take a free shuttle down to the start of the Skradinski buk hike but we opted for the 875m walk down a rocky path instead.
On the way down, we admired the changing foliage and used the iNaturalist app to ID flowers, plants and trees along way.
Our first glimpse of the Krka River.
This is the start of the 2 kilometer trail around Skradinski buk.
In addition to the flora and fauna here, Krka is also home to watermills of the past.
Back in the day, these mills were used to grind wheat and corn, and also for making cloth.

Luckily nobody fell in during our hike over the cascading waters.
Not even clumsy me.
Or the one who inherited my clumsiness either. Woohoo!
Almost made it to our first viewpoint of the falls.
WOW!!!! Really loving the pops of color from autumn.
Hiked down a rocky path to see it even closer.

In the summer, you can swim under these falls but they shut down swimming on October 1st. The kids would have loved swimming here but soaking in the sights off-season without crowds is a treat as well.
Another view of the falls as we near the end of the trail.
We finished our hike around the falls just in time to catch the free shuttle back up to the park’s entrance. Luka really appreciated our timing for his tired legs.
Here is a little video I created for Instagram stories. A proper VLOG will replace this once Dan creates it.
Thanks for following our full-time adventures around the world,
