No Longer Starving!

Real Estate Agent

I had the opportunity to get a picture of Starvation Reservoir near Duchesne, Utah. It got it,s name because a rancher tried to raise cattle in this area and they all starved. In 1970 the reservoir was built and now there is more irrigation water to that area. If you enjoy fishing for wall eye and small mouthed bass this is the place to go. The area also is great for swimming, water skiing, boating, sailing, camping. It is about an hour from Vernal coming from the east side of the state, or 2 hours from Salt Lake coming from the west side of the state.

Here is a new picture to help you see part of the size of the reservoir. You can not see the end in this picture and it also extends behind me farther than you can see if I took a picture of that side.

What a gorgeous lake! It definitely looks like a boater and swimmer's paradise. Very interesting how the cliff walls rise straight our of the water.

Julie, what a beautiful lake  It looks like it's fairly large, how big is the reservoir?I wonder if we flew over it last year on our way to Salt Lake City.

Debbie- I wasn't able to get a good angle to show the size, but it is 6 square miles.

Carol- Let me know how it works.

Rich- Utah has so many beautiful rock formations. You will have to check them out some time.

Debbie, I was thinking that you could have flown over Starvation Reservoir and Strawberry Reservoir on your way to Salt Lake.
