Note:
Going west from Glenrio you have a choice. In good dry weather taking the dirt road west takes you past the ruins at Endee and on to San Jon. In less good weather returning to I-40 and heading west will take you to Russell's Travel Center at exit 369 and on to San Jon to at Hwy 93.

The "EAST " link below takes you to the main Texas index, the West link takes you to Endee.
