Knapp’s Castle

The old ruin known to local hikers as Knapp’s Castle is evocative of five generations ago, and dreams of a mountaintop fortress with commanding views. One of our first adventures in the hills was taking the short hike out from Camino Cielo to climb on the stone walls, and pausing so a hiking buddy could snap us posing in this window frame.

Lately there seems to be some action there, and signs that it’s being rebuilt.

I’ve sent a different aerial photo to Edhat, so comments there will probably provide plenty of information because that seems to be a great site for finding out what’s going on around town.
