Elephant Butte Lake in Winter

North side of the mesa that gives Elephant Butte Lake its name. When viewed from the south, the west profile of the island is said to resemble an enormous pachyderm.

Constellation heads south back toward Elephant Butte and home. Visible at right are the sheds covering portions of the marina; beyond the marina is the dam (far right) and Turtleback Mountain and peaks beyond. Sailing in high mountain lakes is always challenging; conditions can change rapidly.
