Bishops Castle, Rye, Colorado

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.

Cool pics though.
