The Belle Mountain webcam looks southeast across the Pinto Basin toward the Eagle Mountains (24-38 miles away). On a clear day, you may be able to see the Chuckwalla Mountains south of the park, about 46-48 miles away from the webcam. Unfortunately, air quality and visibility at Joshua Tree National Park are often impaired by pollutants. This webcam lets you see current conditions in the park for yourself. The webcam page also includes current weather and air quality data.
