So at 2pm I drove from the ranch to Starvation Reservoir. The clouds didn't look very nice, and I figured it might be raining when I got there. I was right on. It was downpouring and very windy! I waited for about 15 minutes, until the storm passed and then hurried out and got in.

Cathi asked me earlier today why it was called Starvation Reservoir. I saw a display and it said that the legend is that the area in the late 1800s was inhabited by both Indians and settlers. One rumor is that the settlers stole food that was stored by the Indians and that they Indians starved as a result. Another rumor according to the display I read was the other way around. Kinda dumb that nobody knows.
