The waterfalls at Yosemite are flowing again after being particularly dry due to recent droughts. The park is located on the Sierra Nevada mountain range so the waterfalls get all their water from the snow that melts in the area. Less snow means lighter waterfalls.
According to park ranger Scott Gediman there was a lot of snow this year so the waterfalls are flowing extra heavy and will continue to do so for extra long into the year. Yosemite Falls often dries up in June or July but this year should flow until the end of August.
A park ranger named Jamie Richards said that “Due to all of the rain and snow we’ve had this winter, Yosemite park’s waterfalls are flowing at an incredible rate.”
Scott added that “We’re also seeing a lot our ephemeral waterfalls that have not been going for years start flowing.”
