TRUTH !!
To all you new pioneers who come to Colorado expecting mountains and
trees--Denver is on the western part of the great plains. It is not in the
mountains
Despite the undulating terrain, Denver is actually down on the plains. The
Great Plains slowly rise up as you travel west of the Mississippi to the
point where even the flat land is a mile above sea level.
