Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes which saved the tribes.

    Carl Sandburg. 1878--
    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.
    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.
    In this case, the omnipresent fog rolls through the Golden Gate Bridge into the San Francisco Bay. The moving landmark and quintessential backdrop for the art directed beauty of living in "Baghdad by the Bay".
