Our next stop was Alcatraz. We took the ferry out to the island and took the audio tour which was really interesting. It's such a somber place. I couldn't help but feel so sad for those who spent time here...it wasn't an issue of whether they deserved to be there or not but just the thought of what kind of a life it would be in this place. It makes me wonder if locking up criminals in a cold and uninviting environment is really a way to rehabilatate them? Just a thought.

Oh, and I have a picture of a ghost here. No, not really. Hmm...but, really? I swear there was nobody around me. What is it??
