FIREFALL - Yosemite Horsetail Falls

Published on 10 Nov 2018 / In Travel & Events

Firefall is one of Yosemite National Park most amazing spectacles.

Around the second week of February, the setting sun hits Horsetail Falls at just the right angle, to illuminate the upper reaches of the waterfall, and when conditions are perfect, Horsetail Falls glows orange and red at sunset, giving the illusion it’s on fire.

As the sun sets, and dips behind the horizon line, everything will begin to go dark and it will seem, for a moment, as if the Firefall has failed to ignite.

But as the last of the sunlight disappears, it will hit and reflect off the falls at the exact right angle, creating a spectacular if short-lived effect, that looks like a beautiful flowing cascade of fluid fire.

The phenomenon known as "Firefall" draws scores of photographers to a spot near Horsetail Fall, which flows down the granite face of the park's famed rock formation, El Capitan.
