Thanks Dean for this information !

Out of curiosity, do you use a polarizing filter? In my opinion, it is a MUST have for waterfall photography. You'll overcome the reflections that dull your colors and put glare on the wet rocks...

Dean Goss,

Glen Onoko was one of the more interesting and involved "digs" I've made... After trying to reconcile several sources with one another, I've got what I think is a pretty solid list of the falls in order from bottom to top: Entrance Cascade, Crystal Cascade, Pulpit Rocks Cascade, Moss Cascade, Laurel Cascade, Fawn's Leap, Spectre Cascade, Stairway Cascades (the upper tier of "Dual Vista Cascades"), Rainbow Cascade, Elfin Cascade, Chameleon Falls, Onoko Falls, Terrace Falls, and Cave Falls (aka Hidden Sweet). There seems to be some confusion as to Chameleon Falls and Rainbow's possible that they once had their names swapped, but anecdotal evidence is sketchy. The original given height figures were 50' for Chameleon and 25' for Rainbow, but the reality is Chameleon as we know it today is closer to 25' and the cascades a short ways downstream total closer to 50'. Another possibility is that Rainbow Cascades included Chameleon Falls as the upper part. Those old Victorian era waterfall baggers would have known...
