In the summer I hiked around the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. It has some well known caves (more of them in another blog article) but I also run into a small cave on the path to the biggest, 78-meter waterfall, Veliki Slap.
The cave is maybe 15 or 20 meters long, a small tunnel with some stalactite forms. It can be found from the path descending from the hills above down to the waterfall, just before the short man-made tunnel on the path.
The coordinates to this cave are approximately N 44.90182 E 15.60938.

Matthias Giraud. Erik Pütsep Photo. Matthias Giraud is going 50 miles an hour when he slams into the rock spire that juts out from the Pointe d’Areu; a peak just northwest of Mont Blanc. An impact at such speed, even within the protection of modern cars, is invariably catastrophic and likely fatal. Hanging from his parachute like a puppet attached to strings, Giraud has no such protection. He stops moving the instant his body makes contact with the rock, and free fall is interrupted
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Alex Honnold has never been one to follow the rules. Honnold rolls to the beat of his own drum, and he’s been doing it since long before he was a climbing superstar. His original climbing gym, Pipeworks in Sacramento, just shared this gem from the past. Apparently Honnold was caught skipping clips on the gym’s main roof. Nicky, a staff member from Pipeworks, wasn’t amused and pulled his lead card. Thankfully, the experience didn’t deter Honnold from
