View from the left steeple, way above the trees. One man made this with his two hands! #bishopcastle

It's hard to capture the essence of Bishop Castle in a photograph or through the use of words. The most important thing to know, however, is that this place has been built stone by stone by 1 man, Jim Bishop, all by himself. A true example of DIY, he started building in 1969 with the goal to provide a place for the people. The castle, near Rye, Colorado is open during daylight hours every day of the year and runs solely on donations from visitors. It's truly amazing to see what this one man has accomplished in his lifetime. He was working on the mote during our visit. There's even a fire breathing dragon at the place! It's really far out and very much still a work in progress. As a heads up, the castle is definitely a bit sketchy and isn't really ( little ) kid friendly but it's an incredibly special place and well worth a stop to check out if you are in the area. I climbed up the spiral staircase 160 feet ( 16 stories ) to the top of the castle and looked down at the tops of the trees below. Quite a phenomenal, breath-taking experience. Be sure to support his cause by donating or buying something from the gift shop as well. The place is rare gem in this day and age for sure. Thanks to Jerry Hahn / for telling me all his great stories about the place many years ago--so stoked we finally had a chance to stop explore the place! #bishopcastle

Meg and I had a wonderful time in celebration of Nial and Alissa during their beautiful wedding this weekend! Very happy for you both, and glad to have the opportunity to soak it all in with such great company. As an addendum to the guest book, they set out some Polaroid cameras so the guests could leave them something to remember. Here's one of Meg and I from a beautiful night celebrating love between two amazing people. Much love and many congratulations to you both! @poppapnug @uhlissahh
