Runway in good shape after all the recent rains. Northern 1/4 of runway looks to have a rut along the western side but there is plenty of room on the southern end and the runway is fine.

Same condition as last report. Beautiful area. Winds can be a challenge. The day before this report, I opted not to land due to shifting winds on final.

Runway in good shape especially the southern 1/2 to 2/3. Northern end of the runway gets soft. The runway is narrow, and the edges the entire length get soft very quickly. Like the rest of the runway the parking area on the southern end is soft along the edges.
