Horsetail Fall flows over the eastern edge of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. It's a small waterfall that many people don't notice, but it has gained popularity as more and more people have noticed it can glow orange during sunset in mid to late February, in a way reminiscent of the Firefall that occurred historically from Glacier Point.
Below, you'll find an episode of the park's video podcast, Yosemite Nature Notes, that focuses on Horsetail Fall (Episode 14).
