WIA 388

OK, I'm trying something new.  This format could be abused, but hopefully it won't be.
Below, I have posted photos of 7 waterfalls.  You need to identify all 7 (in order).  But, none of these are difficult in themselves.  They are all well known and and on or adjacent to major canoe routes.  (They are not waterfalls that only Peek has visited.).  The only challenge is being able to get all 7. 
(I'm hoping people will make guesses even if they don't recognize all 7;  My clues will be the number correct or some variation.)

Re: WIA 388

The only one that looks remotely familiar is #2, which I’m guessing is Brigham Chute. Other than that, they all look very nice and looking forward to finding out where they are.

Re: WIA 388

Maybe this is harder than I thought.

#5 is not Penn Falls

And if I say, for example #n is not Whatever Falls, that is not saying that Whatever Falls isn't pictured; it may or may not be.

Several, but not all of these falls, are illustrated on Peek's waterfall page: http://www.tourdupark.com/waterfalls-of-algonquin.html

Re: WIA 388

Seems that some further clues are necessary:
All of these falls are within the Petawawa River watershed.
Over the last several years, there has been a contest where paddles have been hidden in the park; if I remember correctly, one such hidden paddle was found near one of these falls.
Each of these falls is located within a day's travel of an access point.
We believe that at least two of these falls have been painted by Tom Thomson but the Canadian Art Establishment might not agree.

Re: WIA 388

I'll chime in for 1 and 2.
P715 and P300, respectively. (Petewawa R, dumping into Cedar)

Re: WIA 388

But what about 3 thru 7? 

But assuming, you're accepting Martin's answer for those, yeah, that's the set.

Peek's up.

Re: WIA 388

I think Peek and I should share the next one! Hmm how would that work?
