Scenic Webcams

One of the really amazing things about the internet, you can travel by webcam to places that you want to see, anytime you want. There are millions of webcams out there, hooked up to the internet. Many of them are showing things that most people have no desire to see, like someones sleeping cat or someone working on their homework in their bedroom. Some however are set to give you great sceinc views of places you would like to see, and and some very cool scenery. Many of them are now high enough resolution that that you can save the snapshots for backgrounds on your monitor, etc. These are some of my favorite ones. Some of them I look at daily, just to see what's going on. Many of them are places I would love to see live every day, that is not possible. This is the next best thing.

Offsite list

There were too many links for me to put the list on Hubpages, so I had to put the list on another site. This is my favorites list and I will update it when I find new cameras that are cool.

Check it out here.

Control

Some of these scenic webcams are controlable, some are live feeds, some are able to go full screen. Some you can look at hi res and some only low res. Many of them also show the time and temperature at the location. Many of the city ones are links to a site that have several for that city. All of them are pretty cool to check out at times.
