Yosemite National Park is home to thousands of waterfalls—from towering spectacles with a half-mile of cascading water, to tiny streams of white that drop only a few feet. Spring is the best time to experience Yosemite’s waterfalls, when the winter’s massive snowfall melts away and heads toward the Pacific Ocean. The Horsetail-fall setting sun striking the waterfall creates a deep orange glow. Every year, in the month of February, the sun's angle is such that it lights up 'Horsetail Falls' in 'Yosemite National Park' as if it were on fire. The setting sun casts its rays on either side of the falls, lighting it up with a rich golden color. As the sun sets, the falling beam of light on the falls gets narrower and narrower, until it is focused just on the falls. It truly is a spectacular experience.
