Yosemite Fall

Yosemite National Park, California

Spring's longer days and warmer weather bear down on the snow-covered Sierra Nevada until the winter snow finally yields and gives up its ground to the rock and flora that lay hidden underneath. Up in the park's higher elevations, the water that was once the snow that coated the range now surges downhill and once again brings Yosemite Fall back to life. Photo © copyright by WG Phelan.
