"Quaking Aspen Falls"

Yosemite National Park / Tioga Road, California, USA

Rating: 1     Difficulty: 1
The so-called Quaking Aspen Falls

TABLE OF CONTENTS

"Quaking Aspen Falls" is a name I made up for this roadside waterfall on the Tioga Road (Route 120). The name came from the Yosemite Road Guide, which discussed quaking aspen corresponding to the pullout where this waterfall could be seen.

I reckon this waterfall doesn't flow too far into the Summer since it's completely fed by melting snow from a drainage that doesn't cover a very large area. In any case, this is merely a roadside attraction and worth a brief stop to get out of the car, stretch, and smell the alpine air of Yosemite's High Country.

Not much more that can be said (as far as I was concerned, at least) about this waterfall.
