The Glowing Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park

Horsetail Fall, located in Yosemite National Park in California, is a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and early spring. The fall occurs 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. When that happens, the waterfall will glow orange for about 10 minutes. This natural phenomenon is often referred to as the “Firefall”.
