alcatraz

We waited 7 years before finally venturing out to see Alcatraz, but I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. There is that minor macabre element (it was a prison, after all), but overwhelmingly this place is beautiful in that distinct Northern California way: towering yucca, the smell of eucalyptus and seawater in the air, scrabbly rocks, dry grass, and crumbly war-era architecture.
