Tundra Monitoring Station

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

During one of our internet scouting missions, we encountered a page on the University Of Colorado’s website that we thought was kind of interesting.

It turns out that the geeks at CU have installed a Tundra Camera atop Niwot Ridge (about 20 miles outside of Boulder, Colorado). The camera sits at about 11,600′ (about 3,500m for all you metroids), and is part of a “Biosphere Preserve” of alpine Tundra.

While we hesitate to call it fun, you can visit the site right now and control the camera from your home computer. It’s pretty dry up there right now — during the winter time it’s nothing but white-out.

Here’s a picture of a Hawk checking out the camera:

Anyone know what kind of Hawk that is?
