'Firefall' makes glowing return to Yosemite National Park, visitors say recent snow leaves conditions 'unsafe'

Thursday 16:20 GMT

The "firefall" effect on Horsetail Fall in Yosemite Valley happens during the second half of February when there is a clear sky and enough snow for the waterfall to flow, according to the park. "It's a small waterfall that many people don't notice, but it has gained popularity as word has spread of the orange glow it assumes during sunset in mid to late February," the park says on its website.

"Visitors should be prepared to walk at least a mile from their parking location to a viewpoint; remember to bring warm clothes, boots and a headlamp or flashlight," the park said on its website.
