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

Potato is looking great after the recent work was done to it. Nice job to those that helped!! Much more usable area now.

Airstrip is in great condition. 1,750 ft length, 20 ft width, with 40-ft diameter turnarounds at each end. South 1/3 of airstrip is smoothest. There are two small humps in the runway surface, one around mid-field and the other closer to the north end that may launch your plane back in the air if airspeed is too fast, but plenty of runway length to recover. Use caution when getting off of the runway. There are several large critter holes that could swallow a nose wheel and make for a sad day.

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.
