“I could never live there — there’s so much snow,” people always say.
Or, “It must be so nice living up in the mountains!”
But when friends and family come to visit me, they are invariably surprised by what they see and feel.
You see, while Denver is technically located a mile above sea level, hence the name Mile High City, it’s really part of the high plains, which means the landscape is actually relatively flat, and honestly? A little boring. The air is dry and you can literally see for miles if you look east (I always joke that you can see straight into my neighboring home state of Nebraska).
