-two years ago i was able to witness this spectacular natural phenomenon. when conditions are just right (enough snow during winter season, high enough temperature to melt the snow, and clear skies for the sun to shine through), the temporary waterfall, horsetail fall, lights up during sunset, making it appear to be on fire. still, this can only happen during mid to late february when the sun aligns directly across from the waterfall. looks like conditions might just be right again this year for this event to occur. you have about a two week span to go see it, starting now.
