Road trip architecture: Hearst Castle - a

On the Pacific ocean half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco is San Simeon. Home to William Randolph Hearst's INSANE opulent castle. I took soooooooo many photos, here are a few. This is the oldest mantle in the castle. Most of the house was heated by fireplaces alone. Massive fireplaces. WR was a huge fan of art and possessed a collection of equal opulence.
