“Quaking Aspen Falls”

Quaking Aspen Falls is a name I made up for a roadside waterfall on the Tioga Road near a sign keyed to Quaking Aspens according to the Yosemite Road Guide…

“Cathedral Lake Falls”

Cathedral Lake Falls is a name I made up for this easy-to-miss waterfall on the Tioga Road just before the Pywiack Dome. It doesn’t look like it’s accessible by normal means…

Waterwheel Falls

Waterwheel Falls could very well be the most unusual waterfall in Yosemite. It’s one of those rare waterfalls where you care how far up water is thrown instead of how far it drops…

“Mattie Falls”

Mattie Falls is another waterfall that I unofficially named. Ordinarly, I’d disregard unknown and unnamed falls like this, but if it floods the Waterwheel Falls Trail it deserves attention…

California Falls

California Falls is the next major ensemble of waterfalls you’ll see beyond the Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp. There is a spur trail leading to its most photogenic spot…

LeConte Falls

LeConte Falls starts off as mostly a long series of featureless cascades until its main drop. In its main drop, the Tuolumne River slides down a fifty-degree slope with potholes backed by rocks…

Tuolumne Falls

Tuolumne Falls is the first major waterfall we encountered as we made our way from Tuolumne Meadows towards the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River. Of all the waterfalls that we encountered on…

Rancheria Falls

Rancheria Falls appeared to us like a series of waterfalls and cascades each with apparent spots to take a dip in the cold water and cool off. From what we could tell, there wasn’t a singular…

Carlon Falls

Carlon Falls was a strangely-shaped waterfall that had that rare characteristic of flowing year-round, which was quite a statement to make since most waterfalls within Yosemite National Park…

Lundy Canyon Waterfalls

The Lundy Canyon Waterfalls page was my homage to the myriad of waterfalls that we’ve seen in the scenic Lundy Canyon. There wasn’t a specific signature waterfall that we targeted on the times…

Tueeulala Fall

Tueeulala Fall (when it’s flowing) is probably the first waterfall you’ll notice as you approach the parking area for Hetch Hetchy. This tall, plunging waterfall together with Wapama Falls…

Wapama Falls

Wapama Falls is the feature waterfall of the Hetch Hetchy area. With its consistently strong flow, reported height of 1341ft, and surrounding granite formations, I tend to think of this waterfall…

Unnamed Waterfalls in Hetch Hetchy

There are a few unnamed waterfalls in Hetch Hetchy I thought might be interesting to point out. These falls have been there each time I have visited so they certainly last longer…
