In 1893, one of the most well-known patriotic songs of our time, “America the Beautiful,” was written by Katharine Lee Bates as she sat atop of Pikes Peak; one of Colorado 58 mountains that summit above 14,000 feet. Just about 100 miles away from that summit at the base of the Rocky Mountains sits Denver, Colorado. With its blue skies and panoramic mountain views, Denver a.k.a. the Mile High City is perhaps one of the most beautiful areas in the country.
With 300 days of sunshine, the opportunities to go out and play in the mountains, foot hills or even sand dunes is almost endless. If you like to work hard and play hard, Colorado is the place for you.
