Yosemite National Park Waterfalls Approaching Full Throttle
Thanks to this past winter's hefty snowpack, the now-melting snow is accelerating the intensity of Yosemite National Park's waterfalls.
If you're fortunate enough to have the time to visit the park, a trip to the Yosemite Valley in the coming weeks should reward you with an incredible display of the park's waterworks.
Already Bridalveil Fall, Yosemite Fall, Nevada Fall and Vernal Fall are approaching full throttle, as are lesser falls such as Lehamite Falls, Illilouette Falls and Sentinel Fall.
Perhaps one of the best ways to experience this annual outpouring from the High Sierra is to hike the Mist Trail, which leads you up past Vernal Fall to the top of Nevada Fall. Expect to get wet on this hike, so you might want some rain gear, unless it's a particularly warm day.
Of course, while these waterfalls are gorgeous, they're also dangerous, so keep your distance and watch your kids.
