SLC Docks

Delta A320 inbound from Newark Liberty.
Loading docks from a new vantage.
Blink and you'll miss them.
Sometimes squinting and straining are needed--
great exertion and commitment to spot a dock.
I find it pointless to simply shrug and say there are
no loading docks in the great industrial expanse
west of Salt Lake City.
I choose to accept that loading docks exist in the thousands,
even if they're not readily apparent in my
immediate perceivable surroundings.

A bird's eye dock pic--hitherto unseen on The Loading Area. This time, the loading docks are minuscule in a sweeping scene marked by wintry landscape, expansive warehouse roofs and an obscured Wasatch Range. Quite a sea change from the close-cropped decontextualized docks you're accustomed to! Plus you get an airline livery-clad wingtip fence as an added bonus.
