Winter season is alive and well in Northern California, as three straight weeks of winter storms increased snowpack in the mountains and raised water levels in the valley reservoirs. One indicator of a healthy winter is the state of the waterfalls, which are currently flowing heavily following the big storms we saw last week.
It may go against all your instincts to go chasing waterfalls during the winter months. After all, many of the best waterfalls in NorCal are in high elevation areas, making the hikes cold and wet. Itâ€™s quite a different experience than going on a relaxing hike in the summer months.
But when the rain and snow hit the hills during a big storm, some of these waterfalls go crazy! Let’s take a look at the overflowing waterfalls of NorCal right now:
