Yosemite Firefall

The Yosemite Firefall -
For one week every February, hundreds of spectators head to Yosemite for a chance to catch the “Firefall”. If conditions are perfect, onlookers will see the setting sun hit Horsetail Fall at just the right angle to illuminate the water into a glowing orange color. But this phenomenon is not a yearly guarantee. If there isn’t enough snowpack in February, Horsetail Fall won’t have enough water to flow. On top of that, the weather has to be warm enough to melt the snow in order for it to turn into water. ALSO, the western sky must be clear at sunset so that the rays shine through to El Capitan.
We see you God. Thanks for this 🤘
