Again this is probably the best I've seen Mineral Canyon. Excellent condition.

Smooth and hard packed. In great shape after the Fall work party.

I had a great time camping here in 2018, on the west side of the runway among the tamarisk and partly under a large cottonwood. With more rain this year, the parking/camping areas are overgrown more than last year. Still a great strip. Landed 14 and took off 32. Strip is flat. When taking off 32 there is slight rising terrain on rwy centerline, but easy to follow the river upstream to avoid. Work day made a big difference. Thanks to all.

Attended the work party with the UBCP. Took out some bumps towards the up-river end of the runway and drug it. Looks pretty good. Some soft dirt but not bad at all.

Decided to take Eagle, CO based Alpine Aviation's two day Utah Back Country Flying Course. Thank you Joe for a great flying experience. Runway was in good condition. The very south end of the runway is covered in tall weeds with soft dirt.
