Denver, the capital city, occupies a position slightly northeast of the center of Colorado, being about twelve miles east of the foothills of the Rockies. It is a beautiful and progressive city. To the west one can see 200 miles of the main range of the Rockies, from Long's Peak on the north to Pike's Peak on the south, their summits crowned with perpetual snow, marking the entrance to the playground of the American people; for Denver is the natural vacation and convention city of America, the gateway to the Rockies. Population 230,000.
