    Default Observation deck webcam

    I know it refreshes occasionally, every 15 minutes I believe, but where are they stored after the picture refreshes? I am planning on hiking this week and I would like to try to get on the cam. Will I be able to find my shot from the webcam from the website somewhere?

    Thanks!

    All the MWO web camera images update every 15 minutes on the quarter hour. So, set your watch and stand on the deck 2 mins before and wait for 4 mins and you should be snagged. The Observatory does not save the images - so, I do. Assuming everything is working right I have a computer that grabs the images when they change and sends to a photo web site I set up.

    An easy way of checking out the new images is to go to http://whatsnew.fotki.com/MWO/

    Brad, Have there been any particularly funny images from the deck cam that you remember? People doing handstands or holding up some kind of sign?

    There have been all sorts of signs. But, normally they are too small or too far away to be able to read them.

    The best was;

    We did have a fire breathing dragon show up one day in the North camera image. It was real scary.

    The moose that was wandering around the summit one day I think was caught by the West camera.
