Glenrio is a ghost town. At the most two person and a number of dogs are the only inhabitants. In all fairness Glenrio was never an actual town. It existed solely to supply services for travelers along Route 66. During the 40s, 50s and 60s traffic streamed through town, filling the gas station, bar, restaurant and motel parking lots, then one day in 1975 everything stopped.
The pavement ends and a dirt road continues into New Mexico so we’re on the interstate for awhile.
Russell's Truck And Travel Museum is located inside the travel center. There isn’t a sign on the outside indicating where to go but it’s straight back from the front entrance. The museum includes over two dozen beautifully restored cars and trucks plus Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, M&M and Route 66 memorabilia.
Back on Route 66 the semi ghost town of San Jon has a nice little city park with free overnight RV parking.
