Majestic Yosemite

Yosemite is beautiful (and photogenic) both day and night. The rare phenomenon known as a firefall also returned to the park this year. Why so rare? It is a result of the setting sun’s rays hitting the waterfall just right and must also include this confluence of events: a warm enough daytime temperature to melt the snow, enough run-off to feed the waterfall, and a clear western sky with no cloud cover to block the setting sun.
