8AM - Making bricks in the Pueblo of El Llano.
On our morning walk, we found a brick works several blocks to the west of our Nite Camp. There are two young men making bricks, and a burro helping in the mixing! These men told me that they have had this job since they were boys. Wow!

Brick making is a major business here in El Llano. There is an adobe mine a short distance away on the west side of the pueblo [town].

Burro mixes the adobe.

Bricks dry for two days.

1:30PM - Camped in Carbo.
We traveled 56 miles today, and have made an Afternoon Camp in the Pueblo of Carbo. This Pueblo is about 6 miles east of the main road, Highway #15.

We are not sure if this will be a good Nite Camp because we have not asked permission to stay from the people in the closest home. Nobody is inside that home. We will ask later on.

5PM - Our neighbor.
We got an OK to stay the nite from our neighbor across the street. She has been tending a nice garden in her yard, and her young son and daughter are helping.
