Colorado, San Isabel National Forest - the heart of what many call Cowboy Country. Yet stray of the beaten path and you come across Bishop castle - a 160-foot high structure that weighs in at an estimated 50 thousand tons.
Incredibly, it is the work of a single man - Jim Bishop. Strangely though, if you are a tourist to the state, you will not find a mention of Bishop Castle on any official brochure.
