Deep in my mountains is a secret castle.
Built at the turn of the previous century it has spent most
of its hundred odd years in abandonment.
I've been driving by it for many years and always obeyed the
'Private Property' signs posted everywhere...until this year.
36 rooms with Italian marble floors and staircases,
a wrought iron gate imported from France and
a gold leafed fireplace worth $5000 in 1910.
I must admit there's a spooky feeling around the place
and despite all the open doors I stayed outside and made my visit brief.
My secret castle in the mountains...
