🌺 Alcatraz Island Prison Pictures 🌺

taken on our last visit to this Amazing Attraction. 

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Alcatraz tour during our visit to 🌉 San Francisco, California. 
Taking the Official Tour of Alcatraz, is certainly one not to be missed when
visiting this beautiful city!

Alcatraz is definitely the {Most Popular Attraction} in San Francisco.

As we made our way around the grounds taking the superb self guided 🔊 audio tour,
my son began taking many pictures of our visit. I thought you would enjoy seeing some of
my favorite 📸 photographs taken while on the prison grounds.

Strolling along the grounds and gazing at the Prison Ruins and listening to the audio tour, you begin to step back
in time and imagine how life used to be at Alcatraz. 

Hearing the voices of actual prison guards and prisoners, you really do begin to get a sense of life on the Island,
when it was once the most notorious prison in the United States.
