Runway seeing some action. Camping area in fantastic shape. Seeing some overland use as well. Runway is pretty rough from vegetation and shouldn’t be landed with small tires.

Landed rwy 08, gravel was in good condition. Noted some brush/debris located on rwy 15/33 on the initial flyover. Only spotted one group of ATV users in the area on a Friday afternoon.

Looks like a vehicle was stuck and left ruts on the main runway. Runway is still landable, but the ruts will need some attention. Crosswind runway has several washes from recent rains that make it almost unusable. This area is seeing a huge increase in UTV traffic.

Camped at Mexican Mountain this last week. Removed a few bushes on runway edge near campground. Runway was in great condition.

A few scattered large rocks and some higher weeds from the rain but otherwise in good shape.

Everything looks good. Appears you could still raft the river!

This is an aerial report as I decided not to land: some sections of the airstrip were dark in color, indicating wet, possibly muddy conditions. There was a large area of standing water adjacent to the airstrip. Definitely appears to need more time to dry out from the rain last week. I selected NEEDS MINOR WORK because it seemed the best option, although evaporation is all that’s needed.
