The melting snowpack is causing flooding problems in Yosemite National Park.

High water has forced the park to shut down 40 campsites at the Lower and North Pines campgrounds. Twenty cabins at Housekeeping Camp are also flooded.

Park rangers hope to have the campgrounds open by the weekend. They blame the massive amount of snow that fell this year.

However, all that water means the falls are flowing beautifully right now.
