Epic first ride day! That's a lot of miles and a lot to take in on one day of Baja let alone the first day!
You are correct that was the location that we had to turn around in 2010 after the hurricanes that had destroyed many roads in northern Baja that year. It had taken us over 2 hours to ride the first 4 miles of the road out of Mikes to the Observatory highway when the road just....ended. We walked for a mile or so looking for it to continue, but nothing. Just devistation. Not knowing what was up ahead and with all the washouts we had already ridden through we thought it best to just turn around and find another way to the Pacific side.

This was our turn around point...no more road. Glad to see it has been re opened now!
