The 71 map shows the pavement ending at Camalu from the north and at Santa Rosalia in Baja Sur. The 73 map shows the pavement ends at EL Progresso from the north and EL Crucero from the south.

The 71 map does not show a low road along where El Datil is but the 73 map does but calls where El Datil is by the name El Deleadito.

El Crucero, below Calamajué?
When we drove the road, under construction, in July 1973. The pavement going south did end near El Progreso (at Mission San Fernando first exit) southbound.

We saw the first blacktop after that around Punta Prieta area and could drive on sections of it until it was all blacktop from around Villa Jesus María... maybe closer to El Tomatal road.

We were on the original Baja 1000 road from around Agua Dulce area to Laguna Chapala. There was activity near Santa Ynez. There was no Cataviña buildings (Pemex, Hotel, Parador) at all yet. Like Vizcaino, it was a town that didn't exist until the highway was built. The original Ejido Vizcaino was a few miles west of the new highway route... closer to Wison's Ranch (El Piloto).

Maybe AAA based it on what the Mexican government told them at the time.

I am sure the auto club got the location from their staff or good source. I don't think many government people knew details in central Baja in mid 1973... especially at the speed all those construction crews were moving along that year!
