Welcome back, TundraCam
My favorite webcam for a very long time has been the remotely controllable TundraCam run by several research groups at the University of Colorado. It’s located 17 miles west of Boulder at a research station (elev. 11,600 ft) on Niwot Ridge. I’ve watched many a sunset and thunderstorm with the cam, not to mention hikers passing through the area, wildlife browsing, wildflowers nodding, etc.
Over the years the webcam has been available intermittently, often shut down by winter weather or factors I could not fathom. It’s been several years since I last found it operable or even thought to look for it. But thanks to a search term I saw in my stats (somebody looking for it), I just discovered it’s up again.
Check out the TundraCam. It pans, zooms, tilts, and expands to full-screen size, and the view will only get more interesting as summer progresses. Click “control now” in the lower right corner to activate the controls, which are rather clumsy and slow to respond. I find it easier to just double click the screen where I want the camera to point.
