Bishops Castle

Took a little day ride last weekend to check on the castle. Hadn't been there for awhile.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

I've been to the castle several times over the years. I've sat down and visited with Jim Bishop, the builder of the castle, a couple of times. Quite a character. Amazing that one guy, almost single handedly, built that castle, but he did. He's about to the end of his building days as his age and health are catching up with him so probably won't be many more changes from here on out.
When I took the guys there as jimw said above, we went clear up to the highest point, or at least Chuck did and I took his pic. from just below him. If a guy is scared of heights, not a place to go.

It's worth a stop if a guy is in the area. Pretty amazing.
