Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil Fall is a prominent waterfall in the Yosemite Valley in California that is yearly seen by millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park. It is approximately 227 m tall. A strange fact about this waterfall is that when the wind blows briskly, the waterfall will appear to be falling sideways. Because of this, the Ahwahneechee Native Americans called this waterfall Pohono, which means Spirit of the Puffing Wind.
