Yosemite: Horsetail Falls & Firefall Appear

The San Francisco Chronicle reports

Amid a year marked by low rainfall, there was some concern that Yosemite’s famous “firefall” would be running dry in February.

When Horsetail Fall is flowing and the weather conditions are just right, the setting sun illuminates the ribbon of water and granite face with a fiery glow.

A week ago, the falls was as dry as a bone. But with the light snow flurries over the weekend, a trickle is now dripping down the face of Horsetail, treating onlookers to one of California’s favorite natural splendors.
