Alcatraz In Photos

Alcatraz Island, or commonly referred to The Rock, is famous for its history as a prison from which, officially, no prisoner ever successfully escaped. My trip last year to the Island just a ferry ride away from San Francisco was so fascinating with its eroded buildings, climbing vegetation, and audio tour of the actual prison.  I got some great (almost eerie) images from the tour of prison island.

You got some great captures. I also have a follow up of images to my visit to Alcatraz coming soon. It's cool getting to see your experience, knowing that we were actually there within several days of each other.

Yeah it has been cool to see your travels in photos from last year as well. I still need to post my photos of the Golden Gate. It is interesting to see the same places but with an unique experience!
