A castle in Colorado?

A castle in Colorado Springs? I just happened to read about Glen Eyrie while looking for things to do on our trip in late September. Built in 1871 by the founder of Colorado Springs, you can now stay in the castle. There is also a lodge and convention center as well. It sits in the northwestern foothills of the Garden Of The Gods rock formations. We stopped by to visit the gift shop and walk around the property. And of course, the weather was not in our favor. I want to come back and stay here sometime.

Such a beautiful spot.

With it’s own built in hiking area.
