The Cloister Bedrooms balcony has views of the unfinished south wing exterior, as well as the ocean and landscape in general. The hallway leads to the balcony lobby that has some extraordinary small statues and carved wooden wall panels. There's also an elevator on the lobby, but this is closed except for special disabled tourists. Note in the photos of the Libary lobby the carved wooden panels. In next tip, you'll see a close up of the original compared with exact duplicate carved by the California artists, since Morgan didn't have enough of the original panels to complete the room.
