IBB ANO FLOW WITH THE SUN "These Air Currents or Air Falls Are So Regular That They May Almost Ba Timed?Mirror Lake, and tha Spray Combs at Bridal Veil Falls. Did you know there are air falls In the atmosphere just as real and ap? parent as are Um waterfalls you have so often viewed with admiration anti delight because of their natural beau? ty? In the famed Yosemite valley the most interesting feature is. to the sci? entist perhaps. Its winds. . Tbe winds there are seldom more than light zephyrs, moody and capri? cious to the ordinary tourist, but when rightly understood one of the wonders of the valley. These interesting facts are told by Professor F. E. Matthes of the United States geological survey In the Sierra Club Bulletin. In no other place In the entire world perhaps art? the nlr currents more sys? tematic and regular than In the Yosem? ite valley, he says. In the first place. the sun naturally heats the ground more rapidly than it does the air. Thus every hillside ha sk Iq:; In the sun becomes a heat radiator and gradually warms the air above lt. so that tbe air, becoming lighter, begins to rise. But under these conditions the air does not rise vertically because the air directly over it is still cool and ls press? ing dow-nwnrd. Therefore up the sides of the warm slope the heated air makes Its way. That is why the tourist mak? ing his way up the mountain slope with the sun on his back finds his own dust traveling upward with him in a choking cloud. But on coming down the same trail, when the face of tbe slope is in the shadow, the dust ever descends with the traveler in the same Irritating cloud. When the face of the mountain ls in the shade the nlr is cooling from the face of the slope and ls pressing Its way down into the valley. Just as soon as the sun leaves the slope of the mountain the earth be? gins to lose its heat by radiation and in a very short time ls really cooler than the air. The layer of air next the face of the hillside chills by con? tact with the earth and. becoming heavier as it condenses, begins to press down along the slope. Thus there are normally tbe warm up draft on the sunny slope anti the cold down draft on the side tn the shadow. In a wind? less region like the Yosemite this nile may be depended upon at almost any titno. But in the Yosemite, with Its bold cliff topography, these upward and downward air current**' are somewhat interrupted. On every sunny slope bold cliffs create shadows, and comae tpiently there are downward air cur? rents or local breezes daily at regular hours as the shadows come nnd go. Glacier Point is one place in pa rt Icu lar in wblcb Professor Matthes says this shadowy effect on the air cur? rents may readily be tested by casting small bits of paper into the air. As the afternoon wears on anti the shad? ows In tbe valle* gather the cold draft in the hills pours downward, forming the Talley liken great river and flow? ing on to tbe plains below Every side canyon nnd valley sends its re-enforce ment*. like tbe tributaries of ? great river, to this general air current flow? ing onward to the plain Willi the return tit the morning *uu the earth at Ibe tops ot the bil warmed and the downward curreut In the air is suspended. The updraft -ooo begins as the Min shines Into the val? leys. The air currents are so regular that they may almost be limed. Kew realise, says the author of tbe paper, that it is on these reversing air currents that one of the chief attrac? tions of the Yosemite depends. Mir? ror lake, to be viewed at Ita best, must l>e seen In the early dawn, wheo the reflections arc most perfect. The lake is stillest and its surface most mirror-like when tile cold night currents have ceased and ihe uprising day currents of air have not yet be? gun. Tel uuli'ss one is punctual he will miss the chief beauty of the place, for tbis perfect stillness is as brief as the turn of tbe tide. In the evening aud during the night, when the down draft of air from the mountain sides is strong, tbe stream of cool air pressing down the slope plunges over ell IVs. Just as water is Been to fall from similar heights. On either the Yosemite falls or the Neva du falls trails this air fall curiosity ts readily encountered In the evening. During the daytime, on the other hand, the air rises vertically along thi* cliffs and up inti* the hanging valleys, taking part Of the spray from the falls along with it A pretty example of the air carrying the spray from the iiU! upward may ba seen at Bridal Veil falls, where two little combs of sprav. one on each side of the stream. Steadily curve upward over the brink As soon as the sun ls off the cliff those spray emili's eease to exist ! An Attraction.
