Day Trip – Hearst Castle

San Luis Obispo, CA

Yesterday our planned day trip to Hearst Castle was a thirty five mile drive north up CA 1 to San Simeon, CA. Traffic was light and the coastal scenery beautiful.

The Castle was built by William Randolph Hearst, publishing magnate and architect Julia Morgan. The project spanned twenty eight years due constantly evolving visions.

Here are some pics, (the inside pics were snagged from the internet)
