Great plimrn 2009-12-27 11:17

Hi Dan,
What a contrast between the laid back SF cyclists and the buttoned up look of Alcatraz. I didn't realize that it could be so clearly seef from SF.
Wishing you health, love & joy in the coming year, Pat

Default To plimrn: Alcatraz is in SF Harbor

Hi, Pat -

I just measured it on a city map; Alcatraz is 2.6 miles from the tip of the pier. It's possible to hear the sounds of the City from the island. In fact, that was considered part of the punishment - prisoners on Alcatraz could hear the sounds of SF nightlife.

Have a happy, safe and healthy new year,
Dan
