After the talk with ranger Benny we did the audio tour which took us through the cell blocks and talked about all different events that occurred in there and stories from different inmates that served time at Alcatraz. They said the biggest downer was the fact that they could see freedom, they could hear people celebrating on nearby shores on New Years eve when the wind came across the bay and carried the sound. They could see the beauty of San Fran but there was a freezing cold body of water between it and them so there was nothing they could do but wait, because trying to escape didn’t prove to be working for others.
After our time on Alcatraz we went back to fisherman’s wharf and had fish and chips and then went back to the hotel and packed our bags so we were ready to begin our road trip the next day!
