April 6, 2010 - PRLog -- If this national park were a man-made theme park, the theme would be "waterfalls". Nowhere else in the world is there such a concentration of major waterfalls. Ribbon and Upper Yosemite rank among the worlds’ highest, Bridalveil, Yosemite, and Vernal among the best known. From almost any point on the valley floor one can see at least one waterfall. From Sierra Point one can see four major and several minor falls.

The majestic Yosemite Waterfalls are iconic symbols of scenic beauty as they are set in impossibly scenic valleys and canyons. It's no wonder why Yosemite National Park is California's Waterfall Mecca. In springtime of a year with abundant snowfall there are dozens of ephemeral falls, a person could spend days trying to see them all.

Every year, millions of visitors pay homage to Yosemite National Park's grandeur and beauty. It's one of those places that you've got to see at least once in your life - especially this April, May and early June when the waterfalls thunder as they tumble and plunge their way down from vertical cliffs at least 1000ft tall!

The concentration of towering cataracts within its incomparable Valley as well as its variety of falls outside the Valley will delight you. In addition to the famous Yosemite Waterfalls such as Yosemite Falls (one of the tallest waterfalls in the world) and Bridalveil Fall, you can find the classic Vernal Fall, the unusual Waterwheel Falls, and the ephemeral Horsetail Falls (a photographer's challenge) among others. Couple that with landmarks (such as El Capitan and Half Dome) and you couldn't ask for a better place to see waterfalls. You can watch this short video to understand the amazing beauty that awaits you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ErAAGlN9E4
