Yosemite has best waterfalls in years, with 199 percent of normal snowpack
Yosemite National Park's waterfalls are expected to peak the first week in June, with the park's snow pack at an average of 199% of normal. Bring your raingear and cameras, preferably water proof cameras.
At the same time, with this huge snowpack the park’s rivers are flowing at a high capacity, meaning dangerous conditions. Every year, people die from water-related accidents, so please be careful.
