Firefall: Yosemite’s Horsetail Fall glows orange and red in the setting sun

Horsetail Fall, located in Yosemite National Park in California, is a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and early spring on the east side of El Capitan.

If Horsetail Fall is flowing in February and the weather conditions are just right, the setting sun illuminates the waterfall, making it glow orange and red like in the pictures below. Enjoy.

This natural phenomenon is often referred to as the “Firefall”, a name that pays homage to the manmade Firefall that once took place in Yosemite.
