Lower Yosemite Falls rainbow, Yosemite National Park, California, USA.
Mists of Lower Yosemite Falls refract a rainbow. Yosemite Falls plunge 2425 feet (739 m) in several tiers, making it the highest waterfall in North America and seventh highest in the world. Yosemite National Park is in the Sierra Nevada of California, USA. Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity. 100 million years ago, the Sierra Nevada crystallized into granite from magma 5 miles underground. The range started uplifting 4 million years ago, and glaciers eroded the landscape seen today in Yosemite.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
