Falling into the valleys of Yosemite

Yosemite National Park in Northern California is a natural wonderland of deep valleys, massive granite mountains, lush meadows, giant sequoias and of course the numerous waterfalls.

Yosemite falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in the world (The largest in US) plunging over 2400 feet in 3 separate sections; the upper Yosemite falls, the middle cascades and the lower Yosemite falls. Yosemite falls is mostly fed by snowmelt and so the peak flow is in the Spring season.

The lower falls is easily accessible by a short hike to its base where a fresh sprinkle is almost always guaranteed. The upper falls however needs a strenous full-day hike.

The pictures of falls are lovely.
We feel as if we are seeing them in person
