The Other Prison

I showed you my favorite picture of Alcatraz yesterday, Alcatraz being the most famous (former) prison in the San Francisco Bay area. The second most famous (active) prison is San Quentin, and that what you see in the picture above. This one is located in the North Bay and is actually attached to the mainland, unlike the island of Alcatraz. Not only is this the second most famous prison, it's also the site of Johnny Cash's second most famous prison album, coming in right after Folsom Prison. I guess San Quentin just can't win. On the plus side, there is great video of the Johnny Cash concert here, something that Folsom doesn't seem to have.
