Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in North America and the world’s fifth tallest. The water drops down at a total distance of 2425 feet or739 meters from the top to the ground. Depending on how much snow fell in the winter, the falls flows thru August then it starts to dry out. Come in spring, this one’s in mid May, to see the falls in full force.
Did you know that the Yosemite Falls are actually made up of three different falls? The Upper Yosemite Fall (1,430 ft), the middle cascades (675 ft), and Lower Yosemite Fall (320 ft). To walk to the Lower Falls would take you just a few minuets. A hike to the top of Upper Yosemite Fall would take you all day. (info from here.)
It is currently raining cats and dogs around these parts and of course it took me over one hour to get from my house to my work place (20 miles away).
If you want to get your fix of watery images, WATERY WEDNESDAY is the place.
