Hetch Hetchy: Rainbow at the Dam – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 283

Hetch Hetchy rainbow at the dam

As I have pointed out a number of times during my Year of Yosemite posts, our visit was preceded by several wet days, substantial snow melt and subsequent runoff. The rivers and waterfalls were at full flow because of the abundance of water.

The Hetch Hetchy Dam management was releasing a portion of their water reserves to control the amount of water being contained. As we looked over the wall of the dam, some sunlight poked through the clouds and the sun painted a rainbow in the mist.
