Nederland, Colo., is a small (no longer “quaint”) mountain town nestled in a valley along the Peak-to-Peak Highway. It straddles the junction of Highway 119 and Highway 72, 16 miles west of Boulder. And now it has a streaming webcam to show you what’s happening. Thanks to Busey Brews Smokehouse & Brewery for hosting this camera. (I can’t tell for sure if the camera has sound. It could be the gentle sound of the creek, but it also sounds a lot like the fan on my computer.)
The town’s modest appearance belies the fact that there are highly desirable multimillion-dollar homes on the surrounding mountainsides.
One of those mountain homes has been host to my all-time favorite webcam, the view into the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Sadly, for whatever reason, it has been offline for the last few weeks. I have my fingers crossed that its absence is only temporary.
