Snort: Unusual Alert Destination

In my snort logs I have alerts that show my default gateway as the alerts destination. For example:

WEB-MISC http directory traversal [Classification: Attempted Information Leak] [Priority: 2]: {TCP} ->

That interface does not have a web server running on it, however, I do have my router configured to forward all HTTP traffic to my web server on a different host. My question is, why would snort be logging the alert destination as my default gateway? Any ideas?

My router is a RH 7.3 box running snort 1.9 and I am using iptables to NAT traffic
