Lake Seneca

Seneca Lake in the webcam is the largest of the glacial Finger Lakes in the United States. The reservoir in the online camera is located in the state of New York and is the deepest in its territory. Seneca is the place of the National Lake Trout Competition.

The lake in live broadcast received its name from the Seneca tribe, a nation of Native Americans. At the northern end of the reservoir online there is the city of Geneva, New York. The village of Watkins Glen, New York, famous for its auto racing and waterfalls, is located at the southern end of the lake in live camera.

Due to the unique macroclimate of Seneca Lake in the online camera, more than 50 wineries are located on its shores. The Seneca Lake Wine Trail is also located here.

The Seneca in the webcam has two main entrances – Catherine Creek at the southern end and an exit to Keuka Lake. The lake flows into the Seneca River/Cayuga-Seneca Canal which connects the Seneca and Cayuga Lakes at their northern ends.

The water temperature in Seneca Lake in the online camera is about +4C, and in summer it reaches 21–27C.

Seneca in the web camera is a popular place for fishing. The lake is home to fish species such as lake trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, salmon, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, pike and yellow perch.

At the south end of the reservoir, shown online, there are Painted Rocks depicting the American Flag and Ti-Pi (nomadic Indian dwelling). It is generally accepted that the older paintings located at the foot of the cliff were painted in 1779. And the most visible and vivid images of Native Americans, the American flag and Ti-pi appeared in 1929. There are two errors in these 1929 additions: first, the Native Americans in the Seneca region lived in longhouses, not tee-pees, and second, the flag is displayed to the left, which cannot be done horizontally.

Vineyards of Seneca Lake

The territory of the lake in the online camera is open spaces for growing grapes. The first wineries appeared here in the 19th century, when the Seneca Lake Wine Company was founded in 1866 – the first major winery in the region.

The modern era of wine production began in the 1970s with the opening of several wineries and the passage of the New York Winery Act of 1976. The region was founded as the American Wine Zone in 1988.

The Seneca Lake Wine Trail organizes many live events on and around the lake, including the annual “Deck the Halls” winter event, where local winery residents showcase their harvests.

There are many other interesting Baltic Live Cam live stream cameras –  the picturesque town of Isafjörður,  the port of Akranes in Iceland. Also there are beautiful live nature webcams, like  “Old Faithful” geyser in Yellowstone,  live stream to Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico.
