Blue Canyon (also, Blue Caņon) is an unincorporated community in Placer County, California.[1] Blue Canyon is located 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Emigrant Gap.[2] It lies at an elevation of 4695 feet (1431 m).[1]

Blue Canyon was possibly named for the blue smoke of the camps when extensive lumbering occurred there in the 1850s. It might otherwise have been named after a miner from that same period named "Old Jim Blue".[3]

The Blue Canyon post office operated from 1867 to 1927. The Blue Caņon post office operated from 1936 to 1942 and from 1948 to 1964.[2]


So being that it is where it is located, sure the TV cameras are there. It is also a major weather station there.
