This marvel of celestial configuration happens in a flash at sunset in mid-February — if the winter weather cooperates.
On those days the setting sun illuminates one of the park's lesser-known waterfalls so precisely that it resembles molten lava as it flows over the
sheer granite face of the imposing El Capitan
There is a video of the phenomenon at the link.
yes if you were not educated (like myelf) you may actually believe it is lava!
yes, well I did think that at first, I was like FAR OUT!! How the hell is that possible!??
sun illuminating on the waterfall. Just brilliant!!
