All Airstrip Reports
East end of the runway was muddy. If you go in early it should be frozen. The west end was dry and firm. No snow on the runway. Landed just past the muddy area and was fine. parking area is great condition.
Vehicles have worn a pretty deep track in the center of the strip, probably 8” deep in places. I landed on the west side of the track, and it was a little rough and overgrown, but usable. I didn’t see any wild horses today, but the area is inhabited by a small herd of them. Note the lovely stud pile in the foreground of one picture.
Landed to the south downhill today due to wind. Strip is dry, relatively firm, lots of hoof prints, rabbit brush, tumbleweeds, etc. but still in good condition on the northern portion. Previously mentioned ruts aren’t bad except just north of the access road where they are troublesome. If landing uphill to the north, touchdown 200 feet beyond the crossing access road and you will avoid the wash out/ruts. Still plenty of runway in good condition.
Windsock has been zip-tied already and is in fine working order. Runway is dry and relatively hard, with minor bumps from weed clumps. Yellow paint on the arrow is quite faded now. This would be an excellent spot for a work party to keep our aviation history with this strip alive.
