the end of the road (or a pause en route) (road trip day 11, and home)

We're back in LA - for a night - but not before stopping at Hearst Castle.  I'm sure everyone's tourist pictures of it are the same - but truly, it's magnificent ... especially the Roman Pool, and the other swimming pool ...

... the whole place reeked of Heliogopalus, at the very least - Italianate Renaissance meets ancient Rome meets 1920s cinema meets ...

... Italy on steroids.

with half of Early Modern Spain inside, and some Ancient Sculpture decorating the outer terraces.

Oh, and the drive there was pretty stunning, too.
