Again, we have been on every tour, some more than once but you always see/find something new. This was a new tour for us - a longer tour (320 steps to climb!! LOL) and saw areas of the castle we had never seen before. This, and the Evening Tour, are now our favorites!
The details everywhere are amazing....the genius of the collector (as well as the untold wealth) and the genius of the architect....match made in heaven! You have to remember to constantly look up and down, as well as all around
This one was very masculine and included closets, cupboards, and a shower as well as this tub. Notice the detail around the heating vent! This is all part of the North Tower which we had never seen before - and unfortunately was not completed nor occupied by WR & Marion before his death. These suites they believe were meant to be for them....the bathrooms were much more ornate than others we have seen there
FINALLY got to see the zebras! Altho WR sold off most of his zoo during the Depression, some animals remain on the property - elk, long horned sheep, etc. But sightings of the zebras have become quite common recently - and I was so thrilled that I got to capture them on film! They mingle with the cattle on the Hearst Ranch
