California's Plank Road

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Between 1915 and 1926, California’s Plank Road was the only direct route
from Yuma Arizona, to the Imperial Valley.  The big impediment was
crossing 7 miles of shara-like sand dunes — some cresting 300 feet high
— which extend 40 miles north from the Mexican border. Learn more about the rich history of California’s Plank Road by downloading the California’s Plank Road.pdf.
