Drive Trip: Bishop Castle in WestCliffe

stayinsalida vacation rentals - Bishop Castle visit

Take a 60 minute drive trip to Bishop Castle in WestCliffe, Colorado to see Bishop Castle, created by at least three generations of Bishops (the details are unclear and highly disputed).

What is it with wacky, rural Coloradans and hand-built castles? Does the west attract eccentrics, or does the secluded life drive them there? The jury is still out on that one, but we’ll keep exploring the question, and this beautiful part of the world! Bishop Castle is located in the Wet Mountains, about 30 miles outside the equally bizarre and beautiful little town of WestCliffe, Merica.

Gothic, CO – ghost town turned climate research station

The gorgeous little ghost town of Gothic was named for the rocky spires that overlook the town like so many medieval church towers. The town has a handful of hearty, year-round residents, but in the summer it is mostly populated by climate researchers and hikers heading up into the Maroon Bells Wilderness area.
