Walking through Plitvice NP

Plitvice National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site where 16 gorgeous lakes from azure to green to gray are said to constantly be changing colors based on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and depending upon the angle of sunlight. It’s an amazing natural phenomena and just one of the many reasons people come to Plitvice. Photo #1 by Desktop Nexus

Adrenaline Junkies Cave Diving Vortex Spring [Pics, Videos]

Friendly fish at Vortex Springs

When you think of Florida and diving, “freshwater” might not be your first thought. But Vortex Spring is a popular diving area for professional, experienced and even beginning divers. It offers training classes for scuba diving as well as being a top ranked spot to become certified. The water is cool, a constant 68° and does not become stagnant due to the constant flow of water that also helps keep it clear. The photographer called this ‘Larry’s pets.’ Photo #1 by © Barry Shively

Burnt time clock and phone time clock at abandoned and semi-demolished Emge Food Processing plant

Burnt time clock and phone at abandoned and semi-demolished Emge Food Processing plant. Before this urbex adventure of an abandoned and partially burned Emge meat processing plant and slaughterhouse was posted, the building caught fire. Again. It caught fire in 2009 as you can see by the toasted time clock — and the walls were partly missing in that room due to the wrecking ball. Knew I was the last urban explorer to go inside the place, but didn’t anticipate the fire. Photo #1 by Love These Pics

Majestic Zion National Park: Angels Landing, The Subway, Cliffs & Canyons [45 PICS]

On Angel's wings --  Angels Landing trail of Zion National Park is something to behold

‘On Angel’s wings.’ The photographer wrote, “I’ve done my share of gruelling hikes, long monotonous, twist your ankles hikes, but this one stands out on it’s own though it was a short 5 mile hike. Angels Landing trail of Zion National Park is something to behold. Aptly named so because when Zion was initially explored, no one belived they could get to there unless it was an Angel on his wings. Then the demons made a trail to the top of it. And us urchins scrambled along to the holy sanctuary.” Photo #1 by Joseph Dsilva
