Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil Fall, located in California’s legendary Yosemite National Park, is a major waterfall in the Yosemite Valley. The waterfall is 188 metres (617 ft) in height.

The Ahwahneechee tribe believed that Bridalveil Fall was home to a vengeful spirit named Pohono who guarded the entrance to the valley and that those leaving the valley must not look directly into the waterfall lest they be cursed. They also believed that inhaling the mist of Bridalveil Fall would improve one’s chances of marriage.

    Yosemite Nat. Park is the place where I built up my watercolor-ing skills, because we went on bacation there for about 18 years in a row – this park never gets boring. Posted an oil plein air a few weeks ago about Bridal Veil:)

  5. Someday I’ll have took a photo of it too.
