Thanksgiving at the Heron Lake Marina, New Mexico

As dusk envelopes the lake, the viewer can just make out the marina pavillion, portions of A dock, and the gangway extension to the left. The view is from the marina point to the southwest.
This view is to the west, looking down The Narrows. In the center can be seen B dock. The structure on the left side of B dock is the longitudinal truss that normally is about six feet below the water. It has been hinged upward and secured to floats to minimize damage in case the marina touches bottom before the spring runoff arrives. The other B and C dock floats are also buoyed up, but are lying about a foot below the water surface. A dock does not have a deep substructure and is designed to withstand grounding.
