Yosemite’s Horsetail Falls – Like a Volcano

I’d love to be in California at Yosemite right now.  Once a year at Horsetail Falls, the earth and sun align so it looks like lava is flowing from the falls instead of water.  The phenomenon only lasts for a few minutes and visitors can only experience this during 2 weeks in February.

Galen Rowell was the first photographer to capture this beautiful image in color in 1973.
