In the mid-Columbia River Gorge, a creek (and later its falls) was originally named “Starveout Creek” due to a wreck in 1884 where two trains were trapped in a blizzard for two weeks. Nobody died, but it was clearly nip and tuck for awhile.
Fast forward to today and the 227-foot Starvation Creek Falls drops out of a slot and into a natural bowl, where the creek spills down through a large bed of rocks before cascading past a picnic area and on to the Columbia River.
To try out a new tripod, I took a leisurely stroll over to the waterfalls. And, what a nice falls it is.
I enjoyed the deep slot canyon area, dazzled by the beauty of the falls, before returning to the car.
