thank you to the person who took these beautiful photos…I have seen photos of the Yosemite by the great Anselm Adams and have always marveled at the beauty of this place…what a rare sight to see the sunset reflected in the waterfall! Thank you. May this place be preserved till the end of time!
At 9:00 each evening in Camp Curry, the crowd which had gathered for the nightly campfire program, would fall silent. A man would call out to the top of Glacier Point “Let the Fire Fall!”, and a faint reply could be heard from the top of the mountain. Then a great bonfire of red fir bark would be pushed evenly over the edge of the cliff, appearing to the onlookers below as a glowing waterfall of sparks and fire.
The spectacle was the Yosemite Firefall, a nightly tradition in Yosemite National Park for some 88 years.
