Berlin Outhouse

We explored the Berlin-Ichthyosaur Nevada State Park. I was glad to be able to see it this time of year. The last time we went it was covered in knee-deep snow and snowshoes would have been very handy to have. There are many buildings and cabins still standing. This is the outhouse that is behind Mr. Watson's house with the antique stove and table with old bottles. In the assay office there are still glass jars, beakers and other lab equipment. This is where Mr. Doolan stayed, who was the midnight watchman. He would eat his lunch in there while taking a break from patrolling the town watching for fires and thieves. The mill still has equipment and stable rock foundations. On up the road is the Ichthyosaur remains display. It is amazing to think water covered that area and a fish that big, about the size of a large whale, lived there.
