“Firefall” returns to Yosemite National Park


It is an incredible sight as Mother Nature plays a trick at Yosemite National Park, making it look like lava is flowing off a cliff.

“Firefall” is the name for the annual illusion in California. It appears when the setting sun causes light to hit the waterfall at the perfect angle.

You can only catch “Firefall” between the dates of February 13th and 27th.

The actual look of the waterfall varies year to year and depends on the weather and the amount of water flowing in Horsetail Fall.

The park recommends you get there early if you want a good spot as it will get crowded.
