Bishop's Castle

Could I really finish my road trip without visiting a castle in the US?
Totally amazing and still in progress, Jim Bishop began building a family cabin
near Rye, Colorado in 1969.
After someone commented it looked like a castle with the stone construction,
he just kept building it into a real life, folk art castle.
He has done all the work himself, except for the stain glass windows.
Traveling through America on our road trip we enjoyed the oddities
of folk art from a castle in Colorado to the world's largest ball of string in Kansas.
Is there something unusual in your part of the world?
Something you would say to friends, you just have got to see this?

What makes road trips fun is just this, finding the unusual and stopping to enjoy.
