While California isn't really part of the Northwest United States, I've included it on this site by popular request. In particular, emphasis is placed on web cams in Northern California and along the California Coast. Links to other cameras around the state are provided, however, this page is not trying to be an encyclopedia of every web camera in California.
Instead, think of it as the "best cams in California" and all cams on the California Coast.
Know of a good cam not listed? Or is a cam not working? If so, please contact me and let me know.
