A new camera has been installed at the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area Visitor Center for the Mono Lake Cam, one of the Mono Lake Committee’s three Mono Basin web cams.


The new camera comes with perks; one of which is the elimination of the light streak that was present on the old web cam. It also (more…)

New Mill Creek WebCam up and running

The Mill Creek WebCam is back in action, and it’s better than ever! It had been down since 5:55pm on Monday, July 4th, after lightning fried the Ethernet port and the router that connected it to the Internet. During the downtime we found a good deal on webcams, so last weekend Geoff was able to install a brand-new camera to keep us updated on Mill Creek. Check out the great image quality of the new cam!

The other new webcam we bought will be installed at the Scenic Area Visitor Center in the next few months, which will offer a view without pink light streaks, dramatically improving this stunning view of Mono Lake.

Mill Creek WebCam returning soon

At 5:55pm on Monday, July 4th, distant lightning fried the Mill Creek WebCam‘s Ethernet port and the router that connected it to the Internet. The camera still works, but the Ethernet port no longer works. While the camera is out for repairs, we’ve ordered a new one to replace it. That means the Mill Creek WebCam should return by the end of August!

We managed to get a really good deal and bought two WebCams, so we will replace the Mono Lake WebCam at the Scenic Area Visitor Center as well during the next couple of months. This should dramatically improve the quality of that image as well.

Intense thunderstorms keep Mono Lake rising fast

The Mono Basin and Eastern Sierra were hit by intense thunderstorms last weekend, especially on Saturday. Rainfall rates of up to seven inches per hour were recorded in the Sierra! Debris flows closed both Highway 395 and Highway 120 West for short periods of time—in Walker Canyon, Highway 395 was buried under five feet of mud in places. Rush Creek above Grant Lake Reservoir reached the highest flow so far this season, around 400 cubic feet per second (preliminary data) as rainfall combined with snowmelt from the still-extensive unmelted snowfields in the upper watershed to spill through the full reservoirs.

On April 19, 2011, the Lee Vining WebCam moved from its long-time home looking out the attic vent above the Committee’s front door to the top of the roof, about two feet below the anemometer. The vent will be closed as part of the remodeling of the front of the building, which will begin this week (watch for a Mono-logue post about that coming soon).

In its former location, the WebCam captured (more…)
