One Mile Above Sea Level

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.  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”.
