Bishop Castle


In the hills east of Pueblo, CO lies a project that trumps all other projects. A single man has been constructing a castle since the 1960's. 


The structure doesn't adhere to building codes of any sort and as you tour around it you conclude from the constant pit in your stomach that it is very unsafe, but of course we traversed the precarious walkways holding onto questionable railings, and prayed no one would step on a nail or fall off a ledge.



There is no room or area that is off limits, the building is a work in progress where there is occasionally a little red tape, but for the most part you just wander around and admire the craftsmanship.


We did not run into Jim Bishop that day, but the word is that he us up there most weekends working on his project.
