No Horsetail Falls glow

Half  Dome – Yosemite Musing
We arrived at the park about 3 pm today and were met with heavy overcast. It later rained. So no chance to see the Horsetail Fall in all its grandeur. In fact the falls were pretty wimpy anyway. You can see from this photo, they are pretty much not flowing or glowing.

Oh well. We will snowshoe tomorrow and try again Saturday night.  Maybe this storm will pass and things will fall together.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “You win some, you lose some and some get rained out… but you have to suit up for all of them.” – Casey Stengel

    Rick,
    If conditions are the same tomorrow night, head up to tunnel view, especially if there is any mist or fog in the valley. We did that last year when the conditions were poor for the firefall and were greatly rewarded:
