Yosemite AvalancheAn avalanche occurred in Yosemite National Park on Saturday. This footage shows ice and snow falling down the face of Half Dome.

Yosemite National Park posted on their Facebook page, “You’re walking on the Mirror Lake Loop trail, enjoying the sounds of Tenaya Creek flowing by when, suddenly, you hear a loud booming noise! Perhaps your first thought is “rockfall!” and you search the cliffs that surround you. Your eyes land on Half Dome and see the cause of the sound: snow and ice crashing down the face of this epic mass of granite.”
