Yosemite National Park Hiking: Waterfalls, Streams and Rivers

Spring Yosemite Falls
"Beautiful but deadly"

(see video below)

Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places in the world. But it is also one of the most dangerous with the flowing streams, waterfalls and river.

Every year there are reported deaths due to mistakes by unexperienced and experienced hikers in Yosemite.

The men in this video considered themselves experienced hikers. They said they had some pretty intense training in the past.

"We thought the water was calm and we went in to cool off because it was hot. The rocks were really slick….and then….”I thought I heard him say, whoa buddy”….

Always be aware of  the power of the cold, swift runoff water that fills the streams, rivers and waterfalls of Yosemite valley.  Even if a creek appears to be empty, be careful as a summer thunder storm can re-fill a empty rock bed stream with a strong current.

Beautiful but Deadly....watch this video about the power and danger of the streams, rivers and waterfalls in Yosemite. Every year someone is killed in water accidents.   Don't let that someone be you or someone you love.
