The stretch from Glenrio to San Jon is almost all dirt and gravel and the bridges along this original stretch have load limits of eight tons. From San Jon, travelers can drive an almost entirely intact mile paved chunk of Route 66 all the way to Tucumcari.

The remains of a small motel and general store can still be seen.
The roof of the store is shingled with flattened metal oil cans. Along the stretch to Tucumcari, the early roadbed paralleled the Tucumcari and Memphis Railroad, constructed in and abandoned in Today, travelers can still see the old wood and steel bridge supports to the side of the highway.

Located on Hwy 54, 21 miles west of Tucumcari, the ghost town of Montoya started when the Southern Pacific Railroad came through. Montoya Mesa stands out with the washes of Caliche, a nitrate-bearing gravel, down the side.
These deposits of Caliche were used to build the roadbeds for I and to surface many unpaved roads in Quay and Guadalupe counties. The 4,foot Cuervito Peak is one mile northwest of the village of Cuervo. Continuing your journey, return to I at Cuervo and take exit into Santa Rosa. Your email address will not be published.
