(Enable popup windows to view latest images from Webcam sites.)


News.-- The Webcams at Sunrise are up for the season. The Webcam at Camp Muir will occasionally be down or display bad images due to weather condition. The NPS has replaced some of the Webcams with new High Definition cameras and has added a new one in the Carbon River area in the northwest part of the NP.

Note.-- Some of the images in the popup windows are larger than the actual window, and you can enlarge them inside the window. This is done to fit the window in displays of laptops computers.

Sometimes the images from the Webcams don't appear on the Web page here and the NPS Web page. This is due to access problems with the weather, technical problems or periods of downtime to acquire parts or equipment.
Occasionally the Webcam images aren't current so you have to read the bottom of the image for the date-time stamp, and read the notice with the Webcams on the NPS Web page.

Kudos goes to the NPS staff for their work in adding and maintaining the NPS Webcams for the public. It's a great tool for both them and us.

This is one of the newer of the Webcams at Paradise. This view is of the Jackson Visitors Center and to the southwest from the Mountain Guide Center on the north side of the parking lot between the visitors center and the Paradise Inn. The camera produces a different size image than the Webcams in the Jackson visitors Center.

This Webcam is located in the Tahoma Woods Administration building at Paradise west of the Jackson Visitor Center (above Webcams). The Webcam looks southwest with the road from Longmire to Paradise in the lower right corner of the image, and the Web page presents the latest air quality information.

This is one of the new Webcams in the NP. This view is of the Longmire area 6 miles inside the Nisqually entrance in the southwest corner of the NP, the only entrance open during the winter (the Carbon River entrance is a permanent walk-in entrance) and to the southwest at the highway from the entrance. The Longmire Museum and former gas station is on the left in the image and the Longmire springs across the highway behind the forest on the far right in the image.

Camp Muir & Muir Snowfield

Webcam is up for the season

This Webcam is in Mt. Rainier NP at Camp Muir, on the southeast flank at about 10,100 feet elevation. The camera looks due south down the Muir Snowfield and one of the major climbing routes from Paradise. The camera is on the guide service hut, see instrument cluster. One good days you can see climbing groups from Paradise along the left side of the image. This camera is only serviced from the summer to fall season, weather permitting, so for periods the image will be coverd with ice or snow or not functioning.
Note the window is half the size (height x width) of the actual image from the camera.

Carbon River (Northwest)

Webcam is up for the season

This is the newest Webcam in the NP, and while the location hasn't been determined it appears to be in the old Carbon River Ranger station on the south side of the Carbon River just inside the NP entrance. The Webcam is looking northwest with the Carbon River flowing right to left (downstream). This information will be updated when more is known.

The Webcams are a 24/7 view and some situations will cause a bad image. The first is if it's dark, it's obvious night, so check the time stamp on the image. The second is when the camera is down for whatever reason(s) and the NPS will display an old image or a message image. The third, like the one at Camp Muir, is often operated seasonally due to weather conditions. Archive images don't seem to be available at this time.

There are other Webcams throughout the Puget Sound area looking at Mt. Rainier or encompassing it in the sweep of the camera across the scene (a Google search will easily return a list). They're not listed here because many are intermitent or not of sufficient quality (distance shot) to be useful for seeing the condition on and around Mt. Rainier.
