Runway was good, landed uphill on 13 even though it was a 7mph tailwind. Watch for the DA’s this time of year as I landed at 7:07am and the DA was already 9800’

Runway is in great condition, no ruts, bumps or rough patches, felt super smooth.

Flew over, did not land. Still largely snow-covered with vehicle tracks, but looked like a great place!

Just a quick in and out to introduce back country flying to a new tail wheel owner. No rutting or debris. Surprisingly no snow yet though I’m sure that’ll change this weekend. Very smooth. Feels as if it were dragged recently.

Camping at Cedar Mountain

Added by Wendy Lessig 6 months ago

The south end of the Cedar Mountain airstrip is a spectacular place to camp. The camping area overlooks a 1,000 ft drop-off, with a panoramic view of the Book Cliffs and Green River valley. Bring your own aircraft tie-downs. Fire ring exists, but use caution, as the Cedar Mountain airstrip is frequently breezy.
