Same as previous reports, a bit rocky but not bad. Land on the east 2/3 of the strip.

No apparent change from previous reports. Mind the rocks and bumps. Slight side slope. Redtail uses this strip to drop off rafters.

Strip is in the same condition as mentioned in previous reports, mind the sandstone "tiles" on the West side of the airstrip. There's more than plenty good dirt and gravel on the rest of the strip.

Some 3” exposed sandstone ledge edges in spots. Nothing you can’t rollover, just be aware.
