Hearst Castle - Hilltop View

This picture of Hearst Castle was taken from the bus as it zipped up the hill. For the best views, pick a seat on the left side of the bus as you're getting in (if you are facing the back of the bus). On the way up, you'll hear a recorded introduction to Hearst Castle that includes the size of the original ranch and other interesting facts.
