Denver is world famous for being knows as the "Mile High City" but Fort Collins isn't far behind sitting just a shade under at approximately 5000 feet and Colorado Springs sits even higher at just above 6000 feet.

But what town in Colorado sits the highest? That would be the town of Alma which sits WAAAAAY up there at 10,578 feet.

I've lived at sea level and at elevation and while there are cool things about both (especially where I was at sea level on the West Coast) I still prefer the altitude. I love the dry air, the crazy weather swings and the sunshine and blue sky.

While I was up at Central City (which sits at around 8,000 feet)  a couple weeks ago it got me thinking about which towns in Colorado where perched the highest above sea's what I found according to Uncover Colorado.
