Anyone know if Yahoo Falls in the BSF ever freezes up?

I'll ask around at the hospital tomorrow.
What I love about running is you can meditate while running. It's a peaceful place.

I'm sure it does, the question is how often. Rick Weber said that one of the big waterfalls in Muir only freezes up about once every 5 years.

I just went to Hemlock Cliffs Wednesday, and one of the locals said it had been zero degrees for weeks, and yet the biggest waterfall there didn't freeze up:

One of the other large waterfalls did though:

& here is another pic from behind it:

Yellow Birch Ravine(note: no climbing) had an amazing frozen waterfall coming down from the arch:

One of the frozen waterfalls at Yellow Birch Ravine collapsed:

But there was another large frozen waterfall right next to that:
