Live webcams are great ways to check weather, examine traffic patterns, or observe the Colorado seasons. They show you a live feed of your area of interest. No matter your reason for using a webcam, it’s important to know how they can be used.

Places to Find Webcams

COtrip

Check weather or highway traffic with COtrip, one of the best ways to look through webcams all across Colorado. You can choose any location on an interactive map and it will bring up a variety of cams, whether they are still (photo-based) or live streaming (video-based). This source doesn’t just show a camera feed, though. It also offers real time weather reports, traffic information, and road work alerts so you can map the best path from Point A to Point B.

You can find these cameras here: https://cotrip.org/home.htm
