How inconvenient. How annoying. How fortunate. Those were my responses when visiting Cumberland Falls. Oh it was everything I expected. Beautiful work of nature, and a wonderful obstacle for my characters to conquer. Then came the problem. My troupe crossed the Cumberland River in about that location in 1769. I had written a full description of the arduous task in my draft. The only thing was that the falls hadn’t been discovered by white man until 1780. So now I have to re-route the trip and leave out a marvelous landmark that added a nice touch to the story.
Whew, I saved that error from cropping up in some review later….
Meanwhile, I recommend visiting the falls if you possibly can.
