Here is a classic view of Rainbow Falls in the morning. Many tourists ask me why they never see a rainbow here. Show up early, I tell them! If the sun rises too high, the rainbow is no longer going to be there. Show up early, and you will most likely be lucky enough to see the rainbow that gives this waterfall its name.
