I wanted to expand a little on yesterdays post. Here is a picture of the road to Austin, Nevada from Tonopah, Nevada. This road goes through the Big Smokey Valley, and is very long, very straight, and very lonely road. Not much out there but a few ranches and a mine or two. It is a really neat drive though.
The town of Austin itself is tiny, old, and interesting. One little part still has the old wooden porch that fronts all the business, which is basically a restaurant and an attached bar, and maybe something else. Neat little town, wish I had been able to explore it a little more, wish I had taken some pictures.
