Home to the oldest lighthouse on the West Coast and an abandoned prison, Alcatraz Island is now managed by the National Park Service. Each year, more than 1.3 million people visit “The Rock”, the federal penitentiary that once housed America’s most notorious criminals.

Here are three shots of Alcatraz from my August trip to San Francisco.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?
