Hearst Castle Hearst Castle / masterpiece / publisher / William Randolph Hearst / Julia Morgan / The Enchanted Hill / Mediterranean Revival style / Venetian glass / splendor

Hearst's estate Hearst Castle in California is considered a masterpiece of American architecture. Wealthy newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst wanted a dream home. This 'little something,' as he called it, was the magnificent Hearst Castle. Construction started in 1919, continuing until Hearst's death in 1951. Designed by American architect Julia Morgan, it was built at Camp Hill in the Santa Lucia Mountains overlooking San Simeon Bay. Hearst renamed the breathtaking site La Cuesta Encantada, 'The Enchanted Hill.' The estate's main house, 'Casa Grande,' was of Mediterranean Revival style with towers inspired by a Spanish cathedral. By the time it was finished, Hearst's dream home had 165 rooms, 127 acres of gardens, terraces, walkways and pools and one of the largest private art collections in the world! One of the pools, the Roman Pool, was even lined with Venetian glass and gold! With such splendor, it's no surprise that Hearst Castle is often referred to as 'America's Castle!'

It covers over two million acres, and is situated mostly in Wyoming, but also in Montana and Idaho. In Yellowstone, there are more geysers than in the rest of the world combined! The most famous of these is called 'Old Faithful.' These geysers are evidence of volcanic activity. Yellowstone has an active volcano. The last eruption left a crater big enough to cover half the park! You can also find plenty of protected wildlife in Yellowstone. It is home to the grizzly bear and the bald eagle, as well as the endangered gray wolf. There are five species of animals listed as threatened or endangered in the park. On average, over two million people a year visit Yellowstone, making it one of America's most popular and fascinating natural wonders!
