All Airstrip Reports
Set up for approach and spotted a large deer in the shape of a small deer in the middle of the runway. So look out for deer and do a fly over first. Otherwise looked like lots of bushes encroaching the runway in places but nothing too bad. I didn't land as the deer didn't want to move.
Runway was in good condition. No ruts. Gnats not pesky.
I did a fly-by and took photos. The airstrip looks to be in good condition. Did not land due to the ongoing sovereign lands discussion which will determine if we can someday land at Spiral Jetty again.
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.
What a neat spot. Will definitely return when I have more time to explore. We went in the AM and had a breeze from the west so our takeoff downhill to the west was easy. The landing to the west is interesting with the dog leg. Will has a good video of landing to the west on Youtube if you search Utah backcountry flying wee hope.
