The Awesome Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in North America.

Yosemite Falls is located in the Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range of California.

From Glacier Point Lookout

This beautiful waterfall is 2,425 feet high and comprised of 3 sections: Upper Fall, The Cascades and Lower Fall (An example of the height of this waterfall is the Sears Tower and the Eiffel Tower stacked on top of each other.)  The best time to see this waterfall is when spring runoff of melting snow is at it’s highest; that can be anywhere from April to late June depending on the precipitation for a particular year.

Yosemite Falls is the premier attraction in Yosemite National Park. It is thrilling to take the walk to the base of the Falls! Wind picks up, the roar increases and before you know it you are wet! The walk is not long at all and the majority of the trail is paved. You end up experiencing the Falls from a variety of angles. It is absolutely amazing! There is also a trail to the top of the Falls (no I haven’t made it up there yet). That trail is approximately 7.2 miles round trip an elevation gain of over 2,700 feet!

I love going to see Yosemite Falls. I remember going a few times when I was little but didn’t appreciate the grandeur until I went again a few years ago. It is truly an awe inspiring sight to see!
