A few times a year the rising moon aligns itself up the right way to cause a rainbow to appear at the base of Yosemite falls. This was my reason for my trip to the park at this time this year. The amazing part was that you could somewhat see the moonbow with the naked eye.

Thanks to a huge spring runoff, the mists at the bottom of the falls was huge, and so therefore was the moonbow.
