Firefall Returns to Yosemite This Week But You’ll Need a ReservationFirefall, that ephemeral magic that happens in February, when Yosemite’s Horsetail Falls catches the afternoon sun just so and ignites into a brilliant fuming sweep of reds, pinks, and oranges, a lick of flames shooting down bare granite, looks likely to begin this year on February 12. If you haven’t seen it in person, it may seem like a quant regionalism. It’s a phenomenal experience to see a waterfall turn from white to blazing orange just as the sun begins to set out west of the mouth of Yosemite valley. You will, however, need a permit to enter the park if you’re interested in checking it out. They went on sale yesterday, so if you haven’t bought one yet, and intend to check out the show, head here, right away.
