The large building in the middle is the Alaska Railroad
Depot (aka Anchorage Depot). Visible behind
the railroad is the Port of Anchorage
, the Cook Inlet and the Knik Arm.
On a clear day, you can even see Mount Denali
, North America's tallest mountain. It is located over
130 miles north of Anchorage and reaches an impressive 20,310 feet in height. (Above sea level -
looking at you, Mauna Kea!).
There are several events which happen throughout the year in view of this camera such as the Saturday

and the annual Iron Dog Flying Iron
