A few deep hoof prints. Kinda soft but not bad. Not too many tracks. I am sure with more traffic it will get packed down. Opted to land uphill (32) with a tailwind. Waited until after the road that crosses the runway to touch town. There is a deep cut in the runway on the right side from the road avoid that. If you need the to cross the road cheat to the west.
Fry was not as soft as I expected. Maybe 1/4 to a 1/2 inch give to foot prints. It’s been graded somewhat recently and recent moisture has firmed it up. Hiked down to look at the cliff dweller ruins across the canyon.
Repaired windsock. Some runoff and erosion on centerline of strip from recent rains. Landing past the road intersection is still the best section of runway. The erosion there is less than a couple inches.
In great shape.
For the most part, the runway was in great shape. As previous reports have stated, a road intersects the runway effectively splitting it into thirds. The southern third below the road is becoming more overgrown and has a deep washout area from a previous rain storm. The Northern two thirds are in great condition. There are small clumps of grass on the runway which was fairly firm considering the the temps that the area has been experiencing. Overall, a great strip to check out. You will definitely feel the 1.7% slope. I recommend a minimum tire size of 8.00 x 6 going into this one due to the grass clumps.
