"Onoko was the name an Indian chief's daughter who was a white settler's lover. The irate chief accused the white man of stealing his daughter's affection and executed the culprit by throwing him over the cliff by the falls. During this execution, Onoko hid in clump of rhododendron bushes, and upon witnessing her lover's doom, gave a shriek of despair before leaping from the cliff to share In her lover's horrible fate.
According to legend, the spirit of the Indian maiden haunts this tragic spot. At precisely 9:15 on any clear sunshiny morning, the restless ghost of Onoko, also known as the "Spirit of the Mist", makes a misty appearance as a white veiled lady gliding across the silvery surface."We did not see any ghosts even tho we woz there at 9:15 but it woz not sunshiny, that woz the problem.
