Night tour of Alcatraz

July 14, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Hello All , 

I thought I would share a few images from my night tour of Alcatraz yesterday . Mike and I were in SF to see some of the Americas Cup race... So we decided to sign up to the Alcatraz tour while we were there . Little did we know, that most tours sell out several weeks in advance.  We bought stand by tickets and were lucky enough to get on .  I have lived in the Bay Area all my life and have never been on this tour so I was REALLY excited to go on a NIGHT tour :) .   I was not disappointed... Alcatraz offers tons of history and lots of photo opportunities . (Both right up my alley !)...Alcatraz housed notorious criminals such as Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelley, and Robert "Birdman" Stroud. It has a rich and interesting history to say the least.

The National Parks Service runs the tours , and do a very good job of sharing the interesting history.  If you have not been on this tour,  I would highly recommend you check it out . 

I have to say the hospital area was one of my favorites. I can't even imaging being wheeled in to this "Operating Room " for any type of operation . ( Shoot me ! ) 

The solitary confinement area was pretty interesting as well . I took this shot,  and originally thought I had shaken the camera (hence the light strands at the top )However - I had my camera on a tripod, and obviously nothing else in the image is blurred... so perhaps it was "Paranormal Activity " ?
