Hearst Castle

This past weekend I took a trip to Hearst Castle with a few friends. I'm ashamed to say that I have lived in California my whole life and have never been to this amazing place. To my disappointment it really isn't a castle but rather a very large house or estate if you will. Hearst Castle is located on the Central Coast of California with views that seem to go on forever. Luckily, the clouds stayed away and we were able to see the spectacular horizon. William Randolph Hurst hired Julia Morgan, one of the first female architects, and together they built the famed castle. It took 28 years to complete and let me just say it was well worth the wait.
