Frazil ice in Yosemite National Park

What is frazil ice? During summer, tourists start to visit America’s natural wonders like Yosemite National Park. But summertime isn’t the only good time of year to see nature in all of its glory… check out the March/April phenomenon of frazil ice. It’s like a lava-like slurpee-flow!

Bonus footage of the Yosemite Falls waterfall that freezes before it hits bottom. Nature is awesome.
