    • Yosemite's Firefall Hike

      Yosemite's Firefall is back. In years when there is enough flow over Horsetail Falls over El Capitan, and the Sunday is at the right angle (10 minutes before sunset in late Feb), and if the skies are clear, the waterfall glows as if on fire. This year in order to manage the crowds, people must park at the Yosemite Falls parking lot and hike one mile through deep snow (with no guarantee conditions will be just right).

      This is not to be confused with the fake Firefall where they pushed a bonfire off Glacier Point for the entertainment of the crowds below. This was done every week for almost 100 years before being discontinued in 1968.
