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.
