Old airstrip with some nice canyon hiking & exploring nearby. Short and rough, but nice spot to get away to.

Overflew potato today. Too muddy to land after the snow two days ago but nice the see some tracks from usage in the recent past.

Potato is about the same a previous report. Weeds a little higher in some areas but not bad.

Runway is south/north and a bit bumpy due to clump grass. Some areas have sage. I recommend about 250' from the southern half to the north and on the east side of the runway as it is a smoother and little if any sage. The total original runway length looks close 2000 feet, but the best usable area is about 800' ft in the area I described before. The other areas get a bit bumpier with some sage but make ok nice overruns. No official parking area but you can easily pull off the runway to the east side and park in some smooth spots. Probably best for bigger tires. A nice spot and close to the CO border.
