Denver is known as the Mile High City. When I have talked to people flying into Denver for the first time they expect mountains all around being a mile high, however it is just situated at base of the Rocky Mountains. In the city itself there is a reminder of the altitude from the row of purple seats at Coors Field marking a mile high to the lack of oxygen visitors find when first arriving in Denver front locations at sea level. However one particular marking is at the State Capitol where engraved on a step leading to the west entrance and looking towards Civic Center Park is the indicator of “One Mile Above Sea Level” which is the image for today.
Be sure to stop by tomorrow for Day 13 of Thirty Days 2008.
