Denver

Denver is nicknamed the "Mile-High City" because its official elevation is exactly one mile above sea level. Like all cities on the eastern edge of the rocky mountains, Denver can experience sudden and extreme changes in climate. In the warmest month of July, temperatures can reach up to 100°F while in December, the coldest month, temperatures have been recorded as low as −29 °F. Denver was first established as gold mining town in 1858. These days, Denver is a natural hub for the distrubution of goods and services to the Mountain and Southwest states. The abundance of mineral resources supports many mining and energy companies in the area, and its position in the Mountain Time Zone makes it an important location for the telecommunications industry.
