Inspirational Thursday-Mountain ViewsIn: colorado, denver, facts September 05, 2013 By: Jemma@athomewithjemma
This is the time of the year that we have had it with Texas, you know how folks that
live in the cold climates go South for the Winter?
Well, when you live in North Texas you want to leave the state during the months of
July through September, and going West is very desirable.
It is just plain, hot and dry here and not nearly enough to do even if you do have a
swimming pool. Cabin fever sets in and we all know that is not a good thing.
So, my friends we are leaving for Denver Colorado.
I have done some research about this beautiful state, as well as the mile high city
and I am sharing these facts with you today.
I love the mountains, the fresh mountain air and oh the wonderfully
cool nights which make for the best of rests.
Yes, we are leaving Texas, for a week.
Denver is known as the mile high city-It is 1 mile above sea level
Denver is the Capital of Colorado and turns 154 years old this Fall
City lore tells us that the first building in Denver was a Saloon
Colfax Avenue in Denver is the longest continuous street in the U.S.A.
Denver has the largest city park system in the nation with 205 parks
in city limits and 20,000 acres of parkland in nearby mountains
Estes Park (near Denver) is where the Stanley Hotel is located
which provided the inspiration for The Shining, by Stephen King
The World's first rodeo was held in Colorado on July 4th, 1869
Colorado is home to 54 14,000-ft. mountain peaks-more than any
other State in the U.S.
