the sky is falling

Here's some fascinating video from Yosemite Park, showing and discussing the process of rock falls:

Geologists discuss the rock falls, and their effect on park visitors, and there's some great video from a park visitor.

The video's a granite-lover's dream, with obligatory spectacular views of Yosemite as well.

I'm feeling less inclined to scramble in the talus looking for pikas than I might once have been.

Does the information in this video affect how you would use Yosemite, or whether you would visit the park or similar areas?

I'd invest in an HD helmet camera. I wouldn't want to miss something that only happens twice a year!
