Snowmelt reveals beautiful waterfalls in Yosemite


Record snowpack is creating even more spectacular views of Yosemite National Park’s famed waterfalls. Yosemite, Bridalveil and Inferno falls are flowing stronger than they have in past years. The Yosemite Valley has 360-degree views of waterfalls as the Merced and Tuolumne rivers surge through the park. Area streams and creeks are also flowing fast thanks to the snowmelt.

    1. It’s called learning about and respecting the force of nature. No your limitations and enjoy the different worlds created by the plant life, the rock creations and wear of the water flow in and on the hiking trails instead. The hike up to Little Yosemite will take you through three worlds.

    1. I have yet to see the wonderment of Yosemite fail. At the very least, Yosemite will ‘Sooth & Comfort’.
      As I said some time ago, someday I will guide you and show you the ‘missed beauty’ of Yosemite.
