Dave Stillman was at Mineral Canyon
6 days ago in a RANS S7 Courier with 26" tires

Middle 1000' of runway covered in approx 6" of water. There is about 400-500 feet on each end that is dry. The North end is a bit washed out and some ruts and rocks.

This place never gets old. Definitely plenty of water in the miner's shack :) That would be appreciated by anyway stranded there in the summer. Runway was in nice shape.

Nice little spot and very scenic flight. Runway was in great condition. On a bit of the softer side but nice condition.

Roy Evans II was at Mexican Mountain
2 weeks ago in a PA11 with 8.00x6 tires

With the light rains that occurred recently in the southern part of the state, it appeared muddy approximately 48 hours after the rain had stopped. Another 24 hours later and it was fine. Would estimate wet precipitation in light amounts around the area to take at least 3 days to dry out provided the canyon gets as much sunshine as possible with clear skies.
