Ernie C (CMC2) got the message below from a friend, and forwarded it to me. The link is to a large-screen high definition version of the video. Very good to watch -- ice flowing like lava!

Yosemite Phenomenon - Frazil Ice

Really awesome to watch! Take a few minutes and be amazed! Scroll down...

The amazing grandeur and power of mother nature...........

It is hard to imagine that Yosemite is only 60 miles from Fresno -- where it never ever snows and rarely gets below 32 F in the dead of winter.
This is an incredible video! It only happens in March and April. I have never seen a creek come to a complete stop like this before and start up again someplace else. It's like a lava flow. Turn on your sound. Now just enjoy

Yosemite Nature Notes -- Frazil Ice

I liked the video so much I took some stills from it for your enjoyment. But watch the video -- these snapshots just don't compare.

Last but not least: The video shows a short clip of Horsetail falls glowing in the evening sunset. Watch the video at 6:57, you can see two ravens flying across the lower part of these falls.

This Frazil Ice video was reposted by Yosemite on Facebook, first uploaded in 2010, so you may have seen it. It is still fun to watch.

Summertime visitors to Yosemite National Park miss many of the unique events of winter and early spring. Frazil ice flows are dramatic natural events that occur in the waterfalls of Yosemite Valley during March and April.
