Yosemite Storm Drama Unfolds on Yosemite Conservancy Webcams

Views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, High Sierra and El Capitan Showcase Nature’s Power and Beauty

Yosemite National Park, January 13, 2017 — As California’s stormy week unfolds, the dramatic impact in Yosemite National Park can be seen on Yosemite Conservancy’s webcams with massive waterfall flows, snowcapped High Sierra peaks and Yosemite Valley cloaked in a glistening winter coat. The webcams are at www.yosemiteconservancy.org.

“The raw power, beauty and magnificence of nature in Yosemite is a sight to behold,” said Yosemite Conservancy President Frank Dean. “Thanks to the generosity of donors, the webcams bring images of Yosemite to inspire you wherever you are and help you stay connected to the park through all seasons.”

Viewers can see Yosemite Falls streamed live, which is one of the tallest waterfalls in North America, with a total drop of 2,424 feet. Other views upload every 30 seconds, including Yosemite’s high country showing Half Dome and Clouds Rest, Half Dome from Ahwahnee Meadow, and El Capitan’s 3,000 foot high vertical rock formation. The webcams are maintained through support of Yosemite Conservancy donors.
