Down the street from the Nuestra Senora de los Dolores church is this shed. The owner of the land it is on was very gracious and friendly and talked for a bit. He was about 80 and spry. This is the thing about exploring in remotish places: people like meeting you as much as vice versa. The land has been in his family for generations. The shed itself was a bar and also a store, but neither amounted to much because the area is so remote.
No traffic, no business. People who in Manzano go for groceries and gas in Mountainair or Socorro...20+ miles down the road.
