TundraCam website gets major redesign

Mt. Audubon (13,223 ft) is visible to the north. Also visible on the far horizon, above and right of the white box, is Longs Peak (the flat-topped peak). Cables lead to various experiments underway on the ridge.

One of the webcams I’ve enjoyed for many years, the TundraCam on Niwot Ridge near Nederland, Colo., is now hosted on a handsome new website. The live webcam is a part of a high altitude (11,600 ft) research station used by several organizations and is fully controllable by visitors, who can pan and zoom to see what is happening on the ridge. In the past I’ve watched hikers, elk herds, marmots, storms, and sunsets. You’ll have control for brief periods of less than a minute, but if no one else is using the camera, you can keep refreshing your view.

When I first logged on this morning I caught these two hikers coming up the trail. Not particularly scenic, but interesting to watch live.

  1. The latest update from Sarah on her Dad (LordBeariOfBow)…
    Hi, Carolyn,
    Thank you for your email. Dad appreciated it. He hasn’t had the energy to reply this past week. He has taken a turn. His heart is failing. He has not been well.
    Mum, my brother Nathan and I are hoping they can make him comfortable and get him home. To his own bed, to coco and to his online friends in the coming week.
    Thank you for your kind words and caring.
    Dad says hi.
    I will keep in touch

    1. The camera is more responsive now than it was, but the view is somewhat limited by the protective overhanging roof or canopy. Not as good as it has been in the past.

... and that's my two cents
