The National Park Service is greatfully acknowledged for hosting this webcam.
In the winter, a 10 foot tall pole in the right foreground, with alternating one foot bands, is used to determine snow depth.
The lower image (MINERAL KING) is a view looking in the opposite direction, north toward Timber Gap which is at an elevation of 9,511 feet.
Timbers from that area were used for shoring in the famous, now abandon, Empire Mine located in the upper right of the image.
Mineral King is an alpine glacial basin encompassing an area of more than 400 acres and is the headwaters for the East Fork of the Kaweah River.
Located within Sequoia National Park, the Mineral King valley is in the Mineral King subdistrict of the park.
In the decades that followed, mining and prospecting declined and other commercial interests began to take aim at developing this pristine area of the Western Sierra.
In order to preserve the valley it was annexed into Sequoia National Park in 1978.
The Mineral King webcam image is taken from Potato Patch Ridge at an elevation of 7,830 feet.Webcam pictures are obtained several times each day throughout the year depending on solar power availability (see "Picture Schedule" in the Special Features Menu).Estimated air temperature, wind direction, and snow depth are also provided on this page.These are not "live" webcams since there is no electrical power anywhere in the Mineral King valley to support such operation.All the webcams and the meteorological station obtain power from solar panels that store energy in batteries.
