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.

Runway was in good shape, similar to what it was the last time I was there.

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

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.

Some fresh work done to widen the road. Nice little spot, runway condition is good. Will be back.

The runways are a little bumpy. Could use a dragging…wish whoever stole it would return it. Some vegetation growing but not too bad. Sock is a bit faded. Could be replaced.
