The waters in Horsetail waterfall turn into a beautiful flaming fire, looking like a natural formation and God’s creation.
These Horsetail waterfalls looking like a flaming fire is indeed a beautiful formation that looks like a God’s creation. Of course, this is not a real fire, but it is indeed an amazing natural attraction. These waterfalls belong to Yosemite National Park, California.
Flaming fire of Horsetail waterfall is a rare natural phenomenon that occurs only in the month of February, when the weather changes from winter to spring. During this time, the snow melts and becomes water, running down the river in Yosemite National Park and falls from a height of cliff. These seasonal waterfalls are affected by the glorious color of the spring sunset light, and thereby the water color changes to gold, yellow and bright orange, giving the waterfall an amazing appearance of flaming fire. You can see many eye catching pictures of these flaming water falls in the images. The video below from Yosemite National Park shows and explains this wonderful, glowing phenomenon.
‘Yosemite Firefall’ is another significant aspect related to this area that people often get confused with. It was a summer time ritual where burning hot embers were dropped from a height of about 3000 feet from the top of Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park down the valley below, and from a distance this used to look similar to a glowing water fall, because the people who used to dump those embers made sure to do so in a uniform fashion. The ritual was performed by several generations of the owners of the Hotel Glacier Point, starting in the year 1872 until January 1968 when it was ended after an order from National Park Service because of the overwhelming number of visitors it attracted, and the fact that it was not a natural event. The last picture in the image section shows the Yosemite Firefall in past.
