Had occasion to be cruising around the Eagle River/Chugiak area today, so snapped a few quick scenics through the windshield. Hazy mountains day and through the windshield didn't combine for great pix, but still a gorgeous day.
Not sure what the "rusty" streak is, but probably some reflection off the windshield.
Not sure who the "Welcome Home" sign was for, but "Welcome Home", whoever!
