You can watch a replay of today’s webcam views of the Snake River by clicking on the TimeLapse link just below the live webcam view on the front page of the website. I use this feature to check on what is happening in the field of view every day–even when I am traveling (and today I am in Madrid, Spain as I write this and I just checked what happened today at the webcam in northern Minnesota).
When you click on the link, you will be taken to the TimeCam.tv page where all images taken by the webcam are stored. Click on the arrow in the center of the image (you might have to run your cursor over the middle of the page to see this arrow). Then all images from today will load (takes a few seconds), and then replay automatically from dawn up to now. You can run this scenario backward and forward to review what you might want to see again. You can also adjust the replay speed from the bar just below the image.
After you have viewed the webcam images from today, you can also review:
- Last 24 hours
- One week
- One month to watch the yo-yoing of the River going up and down based on big rainfalls
- One year for a full review of the four seasons
- Full recording since we launched the webcam on November 20, 2009
Your might see deer, snowmobilers, kayakers, and canoeists–and I have seen geese, eagles, bears and a few wolves. From time to time you might even see me and my boat crossing the River in front of the webcamera. Try it now. -Tom Mortenson
