"Perfection" at Yosemite

Yosemite National Park waterfalls are expected to reach their peak flows within the next few weeks thanks to melting snowpack.

What they're saying: "This is absolute perfection," Cory Goehring, lead naturalist at the Yosemite Conservancy, told the San Francisco Chronicle.

  • "We're not seeing the roadways flood out (like last year)," he said. "We're not seeing the forecast and wondering whether or not we should shut down (Yosemite) Valley."
  • "This is the dream: seeing full waterfalls in June and being able to experience the park."

What's next: Don't expect the waterfalls to be quite as spectacular as they were last year following the historic winter storms.

  • But they should still be a sight to see and are expected to continue flowing at least through July.
