Local Color - Austin, Nevada






















Click on photo to enlarge - photo by Peggy

We stopped at this old saloon in Austin, Nevada for a bit of local color and to wet my dusty whistle with a cold beer. Our 70 some year-old bartender, Curly 1 (a nickname taken from her license plate), has lived in this tiny mountain town for 34 years and told us the population was 800 when she first came here, but the Austin of today has just 140 residents.

Austin, NV! One of the only stops for gas. I haven't gotten to your other shots yet, but I'm dying to see if you posted any salt flats.
