Weather Camera at KAEJ, Buena Vista, Colorado, Viewing Cottonwood Pass (Buena Vista, США)
The weather camera is 1.2 nautical miles NW of KAEJ, and points northwest (315 degrees). Elevation 7946 feet. The Central Colorado Regional Airport sits on a mesa above the intersection of US 285 and US 24. Buena Vista is in a valley that is closely surrounded by mountains on three sides. This topography creates what is called a 'blue hole.' Throughout most of the year, the sky above the airport is cloudless, even though the surrounding mountains may be shrouded by clouds. Consequently, the airport enjoys many more days of visibility than most mountain airfields.
