Austin, Nevada USA
Nevada

Austin, Nevada, until recently looked like the town the everyone forgot. There are now some new businesses but the look of the town has not changed substantially in over 100 years. The town is located in almost the exact center of the huge state of Nevada in Lander County and has a population of only 350. It is high in the Toiyabe Mountains at over 6,600 feet in elevation. The town was founded in 1862 as a mining town along the Pony Express Route through the deserts of Nevada. There are still turquoise mines in the area but the original silver mines have long since closed down. The town is the headquarters of the Yomba Shoshone Tribe and the Yomba Reservation. The silver veins in the Austin area were small and yielded very little other minerals rather than the high grade silver ore. There were some uranium deposits discovered in the area in the 1950s.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
