Bishop's Castle

This is one of the most amazing things I think I have ever seen. Very near where we were camping we came across this castle. Ok, a castle in the mountains, kind of cool, right? Well, this particular castle has been built entirely by hand by one man. One dude built this thing and it is still majorly under construction. He has been working on it for 40+ years. Totally crazy! While we were walking around we were all completely amazed that this guy built such a spectacular structure all on his own. I was moved to tears a few times, just mind blowing it is. E loved it.

We got to meet the castle builder, as he refers to himself. He was an odd fellow and so fun to chat with. Promises to keep the castle free and open to the public, just because. I don't think I have ever met someone so caught up in there own "life's work" before. Very, very inspiring.

The castle is on Hwy 165 , just outside of Rye, Colorado. If ever in the neighborhood, go visit. It is breathtaking.
