So after visiting the Hearst Castle, I immediately decided what I would be doing if I won the lottery. Jesus! The place is incredible.
I went for the first time when I did a road trip up the coast to San Francisco and went the second time with some friends visiting from Canada. We had an amazing time taking in the architecture and grounds but the best part of our entire time there was seeing random Zebras on the side of the road. The Hearst Castle used to have it's very own zoo and instead of selling the animals, Mr. Hearst just let them escape. To this day you can sometimes see some pretty unique creatures just roaming freely along the highway. Naturally after spotting a zebra, we got out of the car, climbed a barb wire fence and tried to chase them down.
