Reported as good condition. SITLA land.  Good candidate for a windsock and any maintenance a work party could do.

Hod (Harold) Dahl visited 10 months ago in a Pa-18 with 26 inch tires

Landed today with the Supercub. 26 inch tires and 6” extended gear. Runway is consistent with previous report. Sage is very present but they are young plants (and soft). This should not be a major issue with taildraggers and larger tires. Walked the runway and it was firm and actually quite smooth. Cow piles are present with some ruts on the double track road. Drag the strip before landing to pick your spot.

Moon ridge is in good shape, no snow or mud. There is some sage and horse manure piles. There is no windsock. The south end of the runway has a great camping site. Further south off the edge of the runway and over the cliff there are some interesting overhangs. Most of the snow is gone off the Tavaputs plateau with just areas where drifts are left over.

Nice area. A little rough but not bad. Here are videos of takeoff and landing.
