A Medieval Castle in Cowboy Country

Bishop's Castle is Jim Bishop's 160-foot high labor of love. His family lives in the castle he built in the San Isabel National Forest, near Pueblo, Colorado, but it is open to visitors in case you are in the area. The castle has wrought iron bridges and stairs, stained glass, turrets, and even a dragon's head watching over everything. And it's still under construction! See more pictures at Kuriositas. Link

Whoa, neat, I've been to this thing before. But it was nowhere near this done! I think it was a good 16 years ago when I was taken there by some of my family.

My family has property very close to this, so I have been visiting this since I was a child. It is impressive, and I look forward to seeing it again. Bishop is crazy though. I thought it was interesting to listen to his insane conspiracy theory rants. But that's just me.
