"More Than a Spectacle" Falls Tip by mrclay2000

Falls, Yosemite National Park: 56 reviews and 122 photos

  Yosemite Falls from the meadow
by mrclay2000

Yosemite Falls is actually three separate leaps, the highest of which is by far the tallest. The middle section actually carries the falls several hundred feet out from the valley wall before the lower falls drops over 300 feet into a creek that feeds the Merced River (buried within the trees in the present photo). In 1997, the perspective of this photo would have been impossible, due to the worst flooding in Yosemite in over a century.
