Never going back
I am what some might call “sensitive “, and I went through this castle about a month ago. I am not originally from Colorado and was not aware of any haunting folklore, and did not research the site beforehand. I wish I had because I never would have set foot on that property. I started to feel it as we got close to the castle, and once we got inside it hit me like a truck! It felt as though I had been draped with a heavy shroud. I felt like I was being weighted down, could not even smile, my stomach felt tight, and I was nearly consumed with feelings of sadness and despair. These feelings and sensations were difficult to shake off for several hours after leaving the castle. I found the entire experience to be absolutely horrifying. Wild horses couldn’t drag me back in that place.Posted 6/9/19
