Webcam Working (if only temporarily)
So thanks to ranger Jon Bowman who made some last minute repairs - and with the generous support of our IT/Telecom unit in the park, we have a working webcam again at Camp Muir. As time allowed this summer, we tried quite a few different solutions, but over and over we couldn't get it to work.
The only hitch in the current getup is that I will have to take the camera off-line in the winter. The antenna that I am using to support the radio transmissions down to Paradise is larger and will act more like a sail in the wind - and the winds will most likely reach over 150 mph this winter at some point and I don't want to risk losing the whole system.
So enjoy it for now. I hope to keep it up until near the end of October.
