Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Village, California

What happens when a meandering creek suddenly finds no land beneath it and plunges a total of 2,425 feet off the rim of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the gorges below? The water wakes up into a magnificent tumble of spray and thunder so entrancing that visitors who flock to see it can barely stop their cars before whipping out cameras. The primary attraction at Yosemite National Park in Northern California, Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in North America, not to mention the most photographed. In the springtime, when the mountain snow is melting, the Falls are their most powerful, and people from around the world come to marvel at this water in majestic free fall.
