We visited Bishops Castle, Rye, Colorado, on Thursday, September 13, 2018. I really was expecting a castle the likes of what I had seen in Germany, this was small by comparison.
We spent a few hours there, exploring and taking pictures. We did not talk to the owner, as we heard he was a bit eccentric, and also very political.
Our understanding - he completed this by himself, a former iron worker, but his story is on the link I have provided. Some of the areas were a bit unsound to walk on. I followed a few younger kids up to higher points, but after looking at some of the unstable areas, did not venture further. My life insurance is not in place yet.
