Stunning Horsetail Firefall of Yosemite Glows like Lava
Yosemite National Park in California is an amazing sight to see, and home to many beautiful natural wonders. In certain months of the year, the Sun sets on the park at certain angles to create some interesting effects. The waterfall that plummets over the peak of El Capitan travels down an incredible 1,500-foot granite wall before it continues flowing downstream. This waterfall is aptly named the Horsetail Firefall as the setting sun lights it up to make it look like a waterfall of lava, flowing over the cliff like a horsetail.

This waterfall doesn’t flow all year long, and some years it isn’t even present at the usual time depending on the previous month’s weather.
