Old Adobe Building

On the way back to camp, just on the outskirts of a town called Mimbres, we saw this old abandoned adobe building. I couldn't resist stopping to take a few photos. From what I could see of the inside, it didn't look like it was a house. Jeff saw a mailbox on the outside that made him think it used to be the post office many years ago.
Here's a close up of the adobe wall. The white looking flecks are really bits and pieces of straw that were mixed in with the mud-like clay that made up the bricks that made up the wall. Very cool.
