The water in this photo is overflow from the Merced River, which is unusually high for this time of year. We has snow into late May, and now that the temperatures are getting back to normal, that huge showpack is melting. The rivers are high, the waterfalls are flowing at peak rates. It won't last much longer, so if you can bear the crowds and traffic, now's the time to go.

Thanks for all the comments. It's mid-August now, and the falls and rivers have gone down some, but are still higher than usual. Over the past couple of weeks, we've had some tragic accidents in the park and a number of people have lost their lives, mostly through carelessness, or from ignoring warning signs. We just lost a promising local high-school athlete yesterday - he fell on the way down the granite mist trail stairs. Stairs too wet, boy running too fast. Sad.
