The sunset was gorgeous behind Golden Gate as we ferried to Alcatraz for a night tour
To think they have made a national park of such a historic prison
There was no fresh water on this island
The families of the guards lived on the rock and the kids went to school in San Fransisco every day
Around 250 of the hardest criminals were housed here like Al Capone and frank Lee Morris who spooned his way out of prison through the vent.
There were a few escape attempts but all were caught except 3 who tunnelled through the vent system(Frank Morris)
It's said they went to South America but no one knows if they even survived the water
It closed in 1963 when it became too costly to run and other facilities were erected
I think I will continue to walk the line...
