Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 139 (Yosemite Falls – Daily Dose)

Powerful Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls proved to be the loudest and perhaps most powerful of all the waterfalls we saw

If you are fortunate enough to visit Yosemite when the waterfalls are flowing well, Yosemite Falls will astound you! The sound alone is enough to foretell the power of this cascade. Note the narrow stream of plunging water at the top of the falls as it widens into a curtain of power expanding outward as it travels down the rock face of the mountain.

Our lodging was just a short walk from this waterfall and we could hear the low rumble throughout the night. It was calming. Each day as we walked to the food court for breakfast and/or dinner, we would pass the waterfall and I think I stopped to look at every time. It was captivating. Our pass by Yosemite Falls this time however, was when we were on the Valley Loop Trail!
