Will your RVing travels take you into Yosemite National Park this month? Most guidebooks will tell you the best viewing of Yosemite’s waterfalls are late May into June, when the water is at it’s peak due to snow melt. However, if you are unable to visit during this time of year, 620 foot tall Bridalveil Falls has a secret to share. On clear sunny days in the later part of October, watch for a rainbow to form near the base of the falls around 4:30pm. As the sun begins to set in the west, a position 180 degrees opposite the falls, the rainbow will slowly travel from the bottom to the top of the falls. This is the only time of the year this natural phenomena occurs. Added benefits of this time of year are the autumn colors, less crowds and a better chance of obtaining a campsite. Snowbirds, be sure to include a stop at Yosemite National Park on your flight path when you fly south this fall and enjoy the annual rainbow event. It’s all part of the RV adventure!
