Yosemite National Park, California 2008 -- Here's the three-tier 2,425' Yosemite Falls as seen from Glacier Point. It is fed entirely by snow melt from a nearly 50 square mile area and is seen at about peak flow here in early June. This is the highest waterfall in North America -- yet the valley below is nearly flat. Why?
