Yosemite Falls is the highest measured waterfall in North America. It's 2,425 ft from the top of the upper falls to the base of the lower falls. Yosemite Falls qualifies as the sixth highest waterfall in the world, though with the recent discovery of Gocta Cataracts, it appears on some lists as seventh.
"Lower Falls: The final 318 ft drop adjacent to an accessible viewing area,
provides the most-used viewing point for the waterfalls. Yosemite Creek
emerges from the base of the Lower Falls and flows into the Merced River nearby."
The lower cascade almost become non-existent or turns into a trickle during the dry season. Since it rained a lot during previous months, we still got to see it in its full glory.
The downside to this place is that it gets very crowded especially on hot summer days.
Some opted to cool down in the creek near the base of the waterfall.
