My trip to Austin (Nevada).

I’ve always wanted to see the Nevada State Fossil (The Ichthyosaurus) so I decided to head out the middle of the state and go to the Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park (http://parks.nv.gov/bi.htm)  I needed a place to stay out there and the closest decent lodging was in Austin Nevada at the Cozy Mountain Inn.  The rooms were sure cozy.  I’m a big guy and these rooms were not.  It was actually a great place though.  It had a good HDTV, a refrigerator, and a microwave oven right there in the room.  It even had a free wireless internet connection. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable.  The bed was a queen size so my wife and I were a little more “cozy” then we are used to  (I have a king size bed at home), but that was kind of nice to have that enforced togetherness.  We drove to Austin on a Friday night, and stayed over Friday and Saturday nights.  Austin is a cool little town.  It’s kind of tucked in right against the mountains overlooking the Reese River valley.  The Reese River would only be called a river in the state of Nevada. (but then, you might think the Truckee river was a stream if you lived in Washington state). What does this have to do with Blivit Design you might ask? Nothing.  I am going to post some pictures on my facebook account if you want to go see them. (http://www.facebook.com/ look for Duncan Winn.

    Although it didn’t have anything to do with Blivit, I enjoyed reading it! 🙂

    Glad you made the trip… It’s a fascinating part of Nevada the vast majority of people never see.
