Contrary to popular belief Denver is not "that high". While it is truly the "Mile High City" (as in 5280 feet above sea level) there are many, many locations in Colorado that are considerably higher in altitude (more than twice and some approaching three times higher than Denver). It is always good to acclimate yourself to altitude before undertaking strenouous travel (such as hiking, backpacking and skiing) and for that Denver is an excellent starting point.


Original text of Red Rocks Amphitheatre was:

"Located in Morrison, Colorado, on the western edge of Denver, Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a gorgeous outdoor concert venue with amazing natural beauty and providing a great view of Denver below. Its popularity has been aided (and no doubt the effect is mutual) by famous live recordings of concerts by popular bands U2 and Dave Mathews Band at this location. The accoustics are the best of any outdoor venue I've experienced, with crystal-clear vocals and sibilant sounds being audible from any seat, without harshness."
