Couple soft spots in the runway but not critical. Overall, it’s perfect.

Runway is firm and wide. Upstream end has some roughness and slight trench. Use a bit of caution on that end. Downstream end is great, stopped for some pictures and a snack.

Runway has signs of cattle but otherwise, in good shape. The parking area is firm.
