Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

This particular spot isn't all that special, except for that most important aspects of real estate, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!  The Department of Health and Human Services is located at the Southeast corner of the National Mall and is practially next door to the US Capitol, the US Botanic Gardens and the National Museum of the American Indian.  And, of course, is located amongst what must be one of the highest concentrations of virtual caches around.

HHS Webcam View

You'll either need to enlist the aid of a friend for family member who can be online at home or have a smart phone that is capable of viewing the web cam page and saving the image for you to upload later. Once you are at the listed coordinates, someone will need to visit the camera page at Trafficland.com.

Please don't stand in the road for your picture.Wink

The best place to stand will vary, since the camera angle seems to change.  What side of the street, you need to be on my even change.  Look both ways before crossing (with the light).

YOU MUST POST A PHOTO TAKEN BY THE WEBCAM TO CLAIM THIS CACHE.  IF THE WEBCAM IS NOT WORKING AT THE TIME YOU ARE THERE, PLEASE POST A LOG TO THAT EFFECT AND PLAN TO REVISIT THE SITE.  PLEASE CHECK THE CAM PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT.

However, if you are using your phone to access the webcam site and have trouble saving the image to your phone, you may use another camera to take a picture of your phone, showing you in the webcam image.  Does that make sense?

Extra credit if you post a pic of yourself at the nearby sculpture, particularly if you can post any information about it.

Enjoy!

Starting a maintenance check on all my caches.  Starting with the webcams.  This camera is not active anymore, so I'm archiving the cache.

Glad to see the first log.  The camera orientation has changed since I listed it.  Wonder if it is permanent.  Does seem to be better for traffic monitoring, but not as nice for the webcam.  I'll keep an eye on it.

FTF! Headed into DC today, braving the light snow fall, to make the FTF on this and one other new OC.  The coords put me on the wrong side of Independence Avenue, but I quickly spotted the camera housing and lined up while my wife pulled the site up on her new Christmas laptop.Laughing

I was a little nervous because there was an unusually heavy police presense.  Just out of view of the camera was a MPD cruiser idling.  He watched me the entire time but didn't take any action.

I walked back to my car and took a look at the sculpture.  The snow had picked up so I didn't linger.  Thanks for the new cam cache!
