a one man's massive-obsession labor of medieval construction
in the San Isabel National Forest, southwest of Pueblo, Colorado
There's more to the story--there always is. One cannot help but admire the imposing majesty of the structure and appreciate the work that one man has committed to realizing his vision. A visionary to be sure, but also an angry man. Today his spine is permanently curved as a result of the work. I can't help but wonder if emotional scars dating back to childhood have contributed to his anger, most of which is directed at government. I also understand that he and his wife have created a foundation to care for needy children in the area.
All that being said, Jim Bishop's Castle stands as a challenge to all who would make their dreams a reality.
