Lucky Tourists Treated To Natural Phenomenon @Yosemite Known As 'Firefall' [Photo Tour + Video]

Just a few times a year in February, the winter sun hits the Horsetail Fall just right to create an optical illusion that makes the water look like lava.

The illusion is limited to just a few minutes but that short window usually attracts photographers from all over the world to capture the stunning phenomenon.

The Return of Firefall I had published photographs of this phenomenon last year. This year, I feel fortunate to have been one of the firsts to witness it. In fact, I just drove back home after seeing this unforgettable moment. This is the Horse tail waterfall in the Yosemite National Park. Every year for a few days in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a molten lava.
