After several years of missing it, I finally witnessed Yosemite’s famed ‘firefall’ spectacle yesterday! What looks like lava pouring off a cliff is actually the setting sun’s last light projecting onto a waterfall plunging 1,500 feet to the ground. The mesmerizing warm glow stuck out like a sore thumb against the cold, dark granite wall of El Capitan.
I was blown away at the hundreds of people alongside me bearing the cold for hours as we all waited for the magic to happen. And when it finally did...the forest erupted in camera clicks and cheers—it was awesome to be a part of. I’m thrilled to have scratched this off my bucket list and I highly recommend you add it to yours. FYI, this phenomenon only occurs in mid-to-late February and needs just the right conditions to come together: a clear sky for the sun to break through and enough snowmelt for the waterfall to flow.
