    Default Frazil Ice Yosemite

    This is one you don't hear everyday, "Frazil Ice". Enjoy.

    Some gorgeous scenes toward the end too.

    Jimmie: That was great, kind of reminds me of spring in AK when the frozen rivers start breaking up. Nature's forces are pretty amazing, thanks for sharing!

    That is amazing thanks for sharing! I'm going to have to take my family up there for a drive to see that.

    That was interesting to say the least. I bet that water falls that glows would be something to see.

    In the old days they would push burning embers off the cliff as firefalls for summer entertainment. milt.

    whoa. i've never heard of this. spectacular, i'll have to search it out this year, thanks for the post! the old firefall where they pushed burning embers off the cliff occurred around curry village. the firefall most people refer to now takes place on the opposite side of the valley and only under the right conditions end of february and is created by natural sunlight right before it disappears at dusk.
