Most of the runway is in great shape. There are some car ruts on the northern end. Not deep enough to cause us a problem but smaller tires might have a bigger problem

Did pattern work, repeatedly landing to the north. 15 kts from the north created significant sink rate right before the cliff. Great practice for this rookie.

I flew low over the airstrip. There were multiple ruts along most of the runway. It looked like a skilled pilot might be able to land between the ruts. Instead of relying on the skill that I may not have, I chose to rely on judgment, and didn't land. The damage is probably best repaired with a grader.

Overflew enroute to Mexican Mountain. Landing surface is useable, but there are shallow truck/4x4 ruts (mostly on the North end.)
