The webcam at Camp Muir has been off-line due to some battery issues we were having. The batteries have been fixed and the webcam is transmitting images once more.
The image is taken with a StarDot webcam mounted on the side of the Camp Muir ranger station and transferred to Paradise with an 802.11x radio network bridge at 5 minute intervals. The webcam is not the primary purpose for the network bridge. The bridge gives a vital phone connection inside the ranger station which is essential to everyday operations and coordination during searches and rescues.
Here's a great place to check out the Muir webcam and other webcams around the park:
