New Yellowstone webcams better than ever
New cameras at Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs
July 5, 2005
Yellowstone National Park has made major upgrades to their webcam showing Old Faithful Geyser, according to the park. New cameras at Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs will provide larger and sharper images than before.
The upgrade was made possible by the generous donation of two StarDot NetCam megapixel cameras. Stardot Technologies has supported the Yellowstone WebCam project since its inception, and they are continuing their support with the recent donation of these web cameras.
The larger, sharper images allow a much better view of eruptions of Old Faithful Geyser, as well as visitor and wildlife activities on and around the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces. Links to all of the park’s webcams on the Yellowstone webcam home page: Yellowstone Park.
The original MammothCam will be kept in place because many visitors use it to wave to family and friends back home via the internet. Visitors can often be seen on the webcam talking on their cell phones and waving toward the camera. As word has spread, this camera has become a highly popular "electronic postcard" that has been sent by visitors to friends and family worldwide.
Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are only 90 miles north of Pinedale, making them great nearby destinations for anyone who is spending a couple of days in Pinedale.
