Heron Lake, Sunday, June 4

Panoramic view of marina at Heron Lake in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Conditions as of this past Sunday continued to improve, with more boats arriving at the marina. Water continued to flow into the lake; the Azotea Tunnel was flowing at 233 to 409 cubic feet per second this weekend and Willow Creek at 245 to 353 cfs. The lake rose 4 inches and gained 1,260 acre feet in the past 72 hours, reaching elevation 7142.29 with 188,816 acre feet (or about 64.2% the amount that's now in Elephant Butte Lake). The marina is in 15 to 17 feet of water and ramp conditions are good.

Buoys partially afloat. (This picture was reluctant to load.)

Dockmaster Jay and daughter enjoy a paddle near the mouth of Willow Creek.
