On our drive home from Gilroy, we stopped at Camp Roberts, outside of Paso Robles. My husband's Grandfather was stationed there after WWII. We've gone past many times and I've always said, "oh, we have to go in there. I love the old buildings". Well we finally did it. They have a nice little museum - always seeking memoirs and donations of old things...I secured permission to wander about and photograph. The derelict buildings go on row after row. It is very spooky. I had not realised that in 1944 Camp Roberts was the largest military training center in the world.
