Hearst Castle

I grew up in California but I'd never been to Hearst Castle until a few weekends  ago.  I expected a normal size Victorian mansion with some castle-like features. Boy was I wrong!  It was overwhelming to look at.  I enjoyed taking photos of it.
Side balconies on the great house.  Hearst was a cowboy and called the whole place "The Ranch".

Beautiful medieval doors.
The view looking back down toward the entrance from the guest house landing.
Wouldn't it have been fun to wear this dress to a lavish party in the 40's?

The lady lanterns inside the indoor theatre.
The fence surrounding the outdoor pool.
One wall in the guest house which had 4 bedrooms.
