Name These Waterfalls! (56K warning)
May 20, 2009 07:44PM
So I was looking back through some Yosemite pics I took in May 2005 and found several of waterfalls I can't identify... I remember that some were taken from the road just before the Wawona tunnel, and others are from the Valley. Any ideas?

#1:


#2:


#3:


#4:

For sure these:
#5 : Sentinel Falls
#6 : Staircase Falls
#7 : Silver Strand Falls

Need to think about the other ones... (I'm looking...)
I think some of Cascade and Wild Cat... and one unnamed one the north rim...

I am amazed that you were able to name most of those! May 2005 when I took those pics was the biggest spring run-off year that I've been to Yosemite and I was just running around taking pics of every sliver of water leaping off a cliff that I could find. We can just call #2 and #3 "Random "ephemeral" Unnamed Yosemite Valley Area Falls". Or maybe just Goat Falls...

I'm fairly certain #1 and your reference are the same falls. The unnamed falls on Tamarack Creek.
Yours looks like it was taken from 140. The other site from 120.

It was obvious from Cascade and #3 that you were there when there was ALOT of water running.

This is pretty cool cause it made me look alot and now I see some more vantage points for
Wildcat and Cascades. Also now I want to check out the old "road" west of the Tunnel.
Looks like they used that road to get rid of the tunnel rock...
Again, it's amazing to me the incredible number of GoogleEarth photos that are just soooo off!
Do you have any other photos around the same time as #2 and #3 to maybe pinpoint where
you took the photos?

I'm 100% positive about the statement above. Both are Tamarack Creek. Same spot... different angle.

O boy... Of course I meant your picture was taken from 41. Not 140.
