Fire flows in February in Yosemite.

We are already at the beginning of March! I have been slacking in updating this blog as well as getting outdoors much. I was at least able to camp out in Yosemite in February.

A perfect setup of nature's landscape and timing of the sun causes a phenomenon. The sun perfectly sets between two peaks of the Cathedral Rocks East (I think), casting a shadow on the face of El Capitan but allowing the sun to shine only on Horsetail Fall. This causes Horsetail Fall to glow like hot lava and transform into Firefall.

I've heard about it a while ago and though pretty neat, I never had any major interest in it. But being there and witnessing it, I'll have to admit that it was an amazing experience.
