For all the times I've been to SF, I've never been to The Rock... Nice scenes.

Back when I was still trucking, I got to deliver two loads of foodstuffs to The Presidio, and I was told that Alcatraz could be seen on a clear day from the warehouse I was being unloaded at down by the waterfront. Neither days were clear, however, and there was no time to take a sightseeing tour--much to my disappointment.

I like the first shot, it shows the island well.
Thanks for visiting!

We've visited Alcatraz some years back, the cells and hallways gave me the creeps. The island is mysterious, but beautiful! :)
