It was a wonderful trip in the second week of August. The guide did a wonderful job of taking to the national park and gave the history of the park. We saw the nature's beauty but we did not venture out too much because of time constraints. I will surely return back and spend more time in the park.
The Alcatraz reminded of how life was when I saw Clint Eastwood's movie Escape from Alcatraz. The audio tour was very descriptive and thorough with the entire island's history. People should not be standing from 4 or 5 am in the morning to see this park.
