Jude and I went on the night tour at Alcatraz. It rained during the day, but cleared up just in time to leave us with a beautifully ominous sky, perfect to set the mood for visiting the deserted prison (and for a spectacular sunset). There’s a decent amount of walking, so I’d recommend wearing comfortable shoes. One woman in line grimaced when she realized she had to cross a puddle in heels. We debated whether her boyfriend had bought tickets and neglected to mention where they were going, or she was just a moron.
Photos inside the prison, of the sunset, and the rainbow to follow.
