Firefalls 2008: Let the fire fall!

In News

There was a fire on the north rim today, just west of Northdome and slightly east of Royal Arches Cascades. Tonight I noticed the light as I went out for a smoke, went and grabbed my camera and took several shots. Unfortunately I don’t have a wireless release and so had to resort to hand-holding the shutter open on some of the longer shots. The original firefalls were held on the other side of the valley at Glacier Point, and ended in 1968.
