Anyone know how the melt is for the waterfalls in the valley?

It's been about 2 months since we were last there, and we're going to be there over this coming weekend, for photography purposes as usual, and haven't heard anything yet about how much water is coming over the various falls at this point in the season.

Thanks!

Here's the USGS data web site for the water gage at Happy Isles.

USGS 11264500 MERCED R A HAPPY ISLES BRIDGE NR YOSEMITE CA

This'll give you some idea of what things are like. In particular this'll give you information about the flow over Nevada and Vernal falls and the river through the valley.

Here's the Merced's flow at Pohono Bridge (10 feet is flood stage):

Thanks! That one gives a pretty good idea of throughput, and it looks like it's only going to rise.

Have you actually laid eyes on any of them, though?

Sorry, went to Kings Canyon last week. But Roaring River Falls might give you some idea:
