A castle in Colorado, built by a crazy person. Jun 26, 2012
Bishop Castle is one of the weirder sights in Southern Colorado, being that it is a giant castle with a wrought-iron dragon's head sticking out the front. It was constructed privately by a local crazy person named Jim Bishop. As far as I know, no one has died since the castle was constructed - but climbing to the very top and feeling the structure sway in the wind beneath you - you wouldn't believe it!

You are also going to be treated to various hand-written signs condemning drivers licenses and telling you in no uncertain terms that it is your fault that you are here, and that you cannot sue the Bishop family if anything happens to you.

Fun for the whole family, but don't get caught there after dark!
