Here are some handy links for viewing what's happening around East County and San Diego's eastern region.  We've updated to include new cams at many communities and scenic vistas, as well as live traffic views countywide to assist commuters. We've also included links to cool photos of the cosmos taken from Palomar Observatory and a live "elephant cam" at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in San Pasqual.

Note: some webcams show live videos, others update periodically with still shots, and others are viewable only during daylight hours.

 If you know of a webcam in San Diego's eastern region (east of I-15) that we should include, please send us the link!
