A week ago I took a trip out west to California where I had a chance to visit Alcatraz Island, site of the famous prison known as “The Rock.” This week’s challenge…’Boundaries’ is a perfect fit.
For starters it’s an island so it has a natural boundary of water…the San Francisco Bay.
Due to increasing operating and maintenance costs, Alcatraz prison closed in 1963. In 1972, Congress created the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and included Alcatraz as a part of it turning over the administration of the island to the National Park Service. If you want to take a tour, here’s a link with all the info…Alcatraz Island
