Son of a gun! There is still a trace of that road. Who'd a thunk it? For as long as I've known of the plank road, I'd wondered what it was like to travel on it. Pretty bumpy, very slow, and a real demand on one's patience. We sure have come a long way from that road as late as the 1920's to I-8 today.
Yes, there is still part of this road left off the I-8 near Buttercup in the Imperial County side. Just about a miles from the Buttercup Ranger Station.
We have come a long way and traveled a long way since them old days.
