I like the beauty of Alcatraz — but then again I never had to serve time on it.

Did the full tour of the Island in 2005. That was neat. I wish I can find the pictures from that trip.

Got to see it from multiple vantage points on our trip to California last year. What a beautiful island.

So the prison was closed 54-years ago, after 28.5 years in service.
