The Power of Yosemite Falls – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 263

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls shows its powert

Yosemite Falls is the 5th tallest in the world according to the Yosemite Falls Facts and Geology website. Several sources indicate that it is the tallest in the United States at 2,425 feet.

It is amazing how much power Yosemite Falls generates considering how narrow the feeder source, Yosemite Creek, appears to be. The water flows regularly from the snow melt in spring until early summer in most years.

The photo above was taken with a telephoto lens from the Four Mile Trail.
